Description Ce.s 2004-11-30 20:27:35 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
I can't change the video resolution with the gnome-display-properties.
There is only the 640x480 option. At the system-config-display I have
1024x768, 800x600 and 640x480.
With the 640x480 resolution I cannot upgrade nor see some messages on
the display.

At the /etc/X11/xorg.conf I have the following configuration to
monitor and video card. The video card is on board of the A7V400-MX

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Samsung SyncMaster 3Ne"
        DisplaySize  260        190
        HorizSync    31.5 - 48.0
        VertRefresh  43.5 - 75.0
        Option      "dpms"

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "via"
        VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
        BoardName   "S3 UniChrome"
Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
