Description of problem:
I just installed FC5 Test2. The installer (anaconda) did not detect my monitor          
automatically but I was able to select it manually. My monitor is a Hitachi 
CM827. 
       

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a fresh install from a DVD cut with FC5Test2   
2.   
3.   
     

Actual Results:  The installer reported 
Probing for monitor type: Unknown monitor 

Expected Results:  It should have detected the monitor automatically.

What are the results of running as root:

ddcprobe --monitor --raw
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-01-18 12:11:30 EST
Unfortunately, the only generic way of doing monitor probing requires LRMI and
therefore, real mode, which can't be done on x86_64
Comment 3 Claus Olesen 2006-01-21 15:20:23 EST
For comment #2: I just installed SuSE10.1Beta1 x86_64 and it did detect the 
Hitachi CM827 monitor automatically.
