Description Isaac Lewis 2005-01-03 16:38:09 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
I am unable to increase the size the gdmflexiserver window. I would
like to use a geometry of 1024x768 or higher.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /sbin/init 5
2. Login
3. Run gdmflexiserver -n :1


Actual Results:  I am unable to resize the gdmflexiserver window any
larger. It appears to be set at 800x600.

Expected Results:  The gdmflexiserver window should be able to be
resized larger.

Additional info:

I tried entering the line(s):

Xnest.geometry: 1024x768
gdmflexiserver.geometry: 1024x768

in ~/.Xresources; however, neither was successful.

Internal RFE bug #147408 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2005-06-16 04:53:17 EDT
Adding -geometry 1024x768 to the Xnest command line in gdm.conf should work
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-12 10:59:30 EDT
Mark does Xephyr support RANDR and allows resizing a running session ?
