Description Graham freeman 2004-12-14 06:32:22 UTC
Description of problem:
The installation proceeds without problem until after being prompted
for desired resolution.  The IBM L200p monitor is designed to run at
1600x1200.  If I select this (or 1280x1024), the screen goes black and
I get the message from the monitor hardware "Input signal out of
range".  I am only able to run X Windows at 800x600 resolution.  I
tried editing the X config file, adding better resolutions, but again
the screen went black.

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

Please upgrade to the latest xorg-x11 available in Rawhide, which
has a number of i810 driver fixes and enhancements.  If the problem
persists using or later, please file a bug report in the
X.Org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org detailing the problem,
and attaching your X server log, config file to the X.org bug

Once you've filed your bug report in X.Org's bug tracker, if you
paste the URL here, Red Hat will track the issue in the upstream
tracker and review any fixes that become available for consideration
in a future update.

Setting to "NEEDINFO" and awaiting upstream bug URL and feedback of
test results of using rawhide xorg-x11.

Version of xorg displays the same symptoms as the earlier version. 
Resolution 800x600 is the only one that does not give the message "Imput signal
out of range".

Does 6.8.2 in fc3-testing improve the situation at all?

I was referred to the xorg site and bugzilla, from where I installed
 Although that did not fix the problem, I was advised to hand edit the xorg.conf
file.  Apparently this LCD monitor requires 
	VertRefresh  60.0
in Section Monitor, rather than the range 56-85.  With this configuration
change, X Windows now works fine at release

Thanks for the help.
