Description Jared Burns 2004-10-28 14:25:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/7.54 (Windows NT 5.1; U)  [en]

Description of problem:
HP Pavillion zd7260us
17" widescreen display
NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700

1. During the install, specify the monitor as a generic laptop 
monitor that supports 1680x1050.
2. Click the combo box to select a resolution.
3. There are no appropriate widescreen resolutions available, not 
even 1680x1050 (the one specified in the name of the monitor).

To make matters even worse, if you select 1600x1200 (which I did), 
when the desktop starts up the bottom of the screen (containing all 
the actions necessary to do anything - including logging out!) is not 
visible. To further complicate things, X doesn't scroll the desktop 
if you mouse to the edge of the screen (as I've seen it do when this 
happens in other distros).

These factors make installing FC3Test3 on a widescreen laptop pretty 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
