Description Barry K. Nathan 2004-11-09 10:26:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Any attempt to manually specify an Apple monitor in
system-config-display fails because there are no Apple monitors in
MonitorsDB. It should be possible to specify Apple monitors just like
other monitors.

Yellow Dog Linux has a patched hwdata that includes Apple monitors.
However, that doesn't help when you're trying to use an Apple monitor
on a DDC-challenged x86 box (a real-world situation I ran into just
yesterday). Therefore I wish to merge the Yellow Dog changes upstream.
I will attach a tested patch to do just that.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shout "FireGL!" in a crowded Bugzilla... uh, I mean... set up
Fedora Core on a box where the video card BIOS doesn't support DDC
(seriously, ancient FireGL cards work very well for this).
2. Try to manually specify your Apple monitor in anaconda or

Actual Results:  No Apple monitors are listed.

Expected Results:  Apple monitors should be listed.

patch: merge hwdata-0.121-1.ydl.7 MonitorsDB changes into hwdata-0.145-1

This patch adds Apple monitors to MonitorsDB. This brings hwdata-0.145 up to
date with Yellow Dog Linux 4.0. I have tested this patch on an "Apple Studio
Display 15 LCD (pre-2001)" connected to a Diamond FireGL 1000 Pro (with my
patch from bug 108681 as well). I got a better-looking picture (due to a
different refresh rate) than with the Generic 1024x768 LCD setting.
