Description Andrew Cagney 2005-05-24 10:12:21 EDT
Machine is the 2xPPC-64 G5 tank.

The graphical install screen, when using a VGA, is oversize, as in the actual
screen is probably 1000x1000 but it is only displaying the top left 800x800 on
the VGA screen.

Reproduce by attempting the (default) graphical install.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-24 10:30:16 EDT
What sort of monitor do you have hooked up?  The G5 on my desk with a 20" cinema
display came up fine with an install from yesterday's rawhide.

Can you get the X config as well as the output of ddcprobe?
Comment 3 Andrew Cagney 2005-05-24 17:47:16 EDT
It's a 21 inch VGA monitor, _not_ an LCD.

How (exactly) do I get the X config and ddcprobe?
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-25 11:28:24 EDT
You can grab /etc/X11/xorg.conf from the installed system or /tmp/X* from the
installer.  And run ddcprobe to get ddcprobe output :-)
Comment 5 Andrew Cagney 2005-05-25 15:21:20 EDT
Humor me.

I can't install the system cos the "OK" button is positioned [virtually] about
5cm below the bottom of my monitor and my mouse doesn't reach down that far!

How can get to this information while sitting at that first screen?
Comment 6 Paul Nasrat 2005-05-25 15:45:10 EDT
Ctrl-Alt-F2 to switch to tty2 which has a console.

Was this better in FC4 final?
Comment 10 John Thacker 2006-05-07 11:51:50 EDT
Closing due to lack of response by reporter.
If this problem still occurs in FC4 or FC5 final, please
reopen and supply my information.
