Description of problem:
I have a Sony HX93 monitor with a DVI connection.
The right resolution for this monitor is 1280 x 1024.
With Fedora Core 3, I could use this resolution without any trouble.
With Fedora Core 4, this resolution is unavailable.
I have tried with the nv and nvidia driver.
I have tried using "Sony SDM-HX93" monitor and "LCD panel 1280x1024"
system-config-display let me choose a resolution of 1280x1024.
gnome-display-properties don't let me choose a resolution of 1280x1024.
Xorg.log file :
(II) NV(0): Mode "1280x1024" is larger than BIOS programmed panel size of 1024 x 768. Removing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-display-properties.
2. Try to choose 1280x1024
3. Only 1024x768 (or smaller) resolution is avalaible
I made a mistake : The problem is only with nv driver. Nvidia binary driver
(II) NV(0): Mode "1280x1024" is larger than BIOS programmed panel size of 1024 x
Indicates that your BIOS claims the panel size is 1024x768, so this appears to
be a BIOS bug. Have you recently updated your BIOS?
Make sure you do not have the proprietary Nvidia drivers even installed, as
they overwrite Red Hat supplied X server modules, resulting in an unsupported
installation. Reinstall all xorg-x11 rpms if you have installed nvidia
proprietary drivers previously, in order to restore the Red Hat supplied
modules and ensure a clean install.
If that does not solve the problem, please report the issue to X.Org at
http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component, and paste the URL
here and we will track the issue in the upstream bugzilla.
Thanks in advance.
I have created a bug report in X.Org bugzilla :
xorg-x11-6.8.2-45 fixed a bios related issue: linux-native-pciscan patch was
broken. Can you give it a try?

Is -37 the last version known to work for this issue ?
Can someone having this problem attach his /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?
