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):
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
Will attach working xorg.conf
Created attachment 120686 [details]
working xorg.conf file
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.
