Heya Phil,

I upgraded to FC5 and it recognized my monitor okay, except there are still
issues.  The preferred resolution for this monitor is 1600x1200 at 60Hz, however
when I boot into X windows, it tries to run the monitor at 1600x1200 at 75Hz
which cuases the monitor to display a message saying it cannot display.

I am forced to hand modify my xorg.conf file with the following modeline:
ModeLine     "1600x1200" 162.0 1600 1664 1856 2160 1200 1201 1204 1250 +hsync +vsync

I'm not sure if this is a hwdata issue or an X11 issue, please advise on the
correct course of action I should take to make 65Hz the default vsync for this
monitor type.

One other thing I noticed, is that the monitor shows up in the list as a
"VP2030" and it's really a "VP2030b" but I guess this is not as important an issue.

Correction:  Should read ...to make 60Hz the default vsync for this monitor type
@ 1600x1200.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

I uncommented my ModeLine in my xorg.conf and restarted X and it picked the
correct refresh rate.  This bug appears to be fixed in FC-6.
