Description of problem:
Using fc3test3 DVD installer I noticed that the installation screens
were tiny, stuck in the top left hand corner of the screen and that
the resolution was high but only that little area was usable.
I assumed that this may be an installation only problem so ignored and
continued with the installation.
After installation I discovered that X11 appears to be stuck to the
highest resolution my monitor (Hansol 710P) can handle (1600x1200).
I believe the graphics card (ATI Radeon 7200) can go higher so it
appears to be the monitor that fixes the resolution.
When I alter the X11 config file to change resolution or use the
Ctrl-Alt-Num+/- to switch resolutions, is all that happens is that the
usable area of the screen is altered to match the new "resolution" and
this area appears at the top left of the screen with the unused space
For example, 640x480 gives a 640x480 box in the top left of a
1600x1200 screen, 1024x768 gives similar effect but with usable area
enlarged to 1024x768 leaving less black unusable area at the bottom
and right of the screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use DVD installer on 3.06Ghz PC with Radeon 7200 graphics card and
Hansol 710P monitor.
Actual Results: Installation screen appears in top left of real
screen with very small text and icons.
Expected Results: Installation screen should fill real screen.
