Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179434
Xorg.log and xdpyinfo report different real screen size (in mm)
Last modified: 2011-05-26 12:15:26 EDT
I've got FC development on an x86_64, with an ATI Radeon 9200SE card, connected
to a 37" LCD TV through DVI.
In my Xorg.log file, I can see :
(--) RADEON(0): Display dimensions: (820, 460) mm
(--) RADEON(0): DPI set to (31, 42)
Which is the correct real size (yes, it's big!). But in X, xdpyinfo reports :
print screen: no
dimensions: 1024x768 pixels (839x464 millimeters)
resolution: 31x42 dots per inch
The reported size differs slightly, and the calculated aspect ratio too. This
doesn't make much sense to me, since people forcing the screen size in
xorg.conf would probably expect to get the same values from xdpyinfo. Or is
there an explanation for this difference in values?
Please attach your X server log and config file as individual uncompressed
file attachments using the link below.
You may already find them in bug #178897 as it's the same machine.
If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in FC5 test3,
please file a bug report in the X.Org bugzilla located at
http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component.
Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes
that become available for consideration in future updates.
Setting status to "RAWHIDE".
Yes, still reproducable. So here you go :

Please, don't. File a new bug with your own logs (/var/log/Xorg.0.log, and output of dmesg, and of course /etc/X11/xorg.conf* if you have any).
