Description of problem:
When I went to change the monitor display resolution settings the system crashed and would not recover. I was using FEDORA CORE 4 Test 3. I have an
NVidia GForce 64 Mb AGP Video Card on a Pentium 4 System.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 4 Test 3 on Intel Pentium 4 with NVidia GForce 64 MB AGP Card
2. Log in as the Root
3. Set the Video setting higher than 768 x 1024
4. Restart GDM and try to log in
Actual Results: System blacked out and cannot be recovered.
Expected Results: Settings should have changed and display area of screen should have increased when GDM X Display restarted.
Wrong component - XFree86 was obsoleted by xorg-x11 in FC2 and later.
