Description Mark Frazer 2005-11-03 08:01:11 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I have 2 computers hooked up to a dell 2005fpw, one on the DVI port, one on the VGA.  The dell panel has a button on the front to switch between the two inputs.

Configuring a single headed 1680x1050 display worked fine.  In that case I selected a Dell 2005FPW (digital) as the display, my Radeon 7000 as the graphics card, and the 1680x1050 display resolution.

On computer 2, which is using the VGA input, I selected a Dell 2005FPW (analogue) as the display, a Radeon 7000 as the graphics card, and 1680x1050 display resolution.  The panel put up a display screen saying it could not drive that mode.

I had to add the modeline in the attached xorg.conf to get it to work.

I'm not sure if this bug is against xorg-x11 or against system-config-display.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach video card do VGA input of Dell 2005FPW
2. Configure monitor to be Dell 2005FPW (analogue) in system-config-display
3. Configure resolution to be 1680x1050 in system-config-display


Additional info:

Will attach working xorg.conf

This is the working xorg.conf with the needed modeline to drive the Dell
2005FPW on the VGA port.

I am running system-config-display-1.0.29-1

1680x1050 modes are added to the X server in rawhide.
