setting the resolution in s-c-d has no effect after X is restarted
Last modified: 2018-04-11 06:49:49 EDT
Description of problem:
My display is stuck at 1024x768, even though it is capable of 1920x1440.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set resolution in s-c-d to 1920x1440
2. Log out
3. Nuke gdm
4. Log back in
Actual resolution is 1024x768, but s-c-d has 1920x1440 selected still.
Actual resolution is 1024x768.
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
Fixed in rhpxl 0.35-1, which is headed to FC6 shortly.
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-
