2. Log out

Actual resolution is 1024x768, but s-c-d has 1920x1440 selected still.

Expected results:
Actual resolution is 1024x768.
Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2006-03-07 06:41:23 EST
Could you please attach your /etc/X11/xorg.conf? (after set-up by s-c-d)
Could you set 1920x1440 by hand in /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

I see the same here. Radeon 9000 with system-config-display as of 31/08.

All attempts to set a mode are ignored. No display section is written into
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2006-09-21 18:38:31 EDT
Fixed in rhpxl 0.35-1, which is headed to FC6 shortly.
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2006-10-02 19:07:52 EDT
Still broken in FC6pre with updates as of today

Attempting to set a video mode produces a mode section with every mode larger
same size ro smaller listed *twice*

Setting it with --noui command line modes -works-
