system-config-display does not offer native resolution
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
system-config-display does not affer native resolution. The native resolution
of my laptop is 1440x900. When I run system-config-display, I am not offered
this resolution, and I have to configure xorg.conf by hand. I'm attaching the
difference between my xorg.conf and a default (800x600) xorg.conf that I
selected during firstboot. Sorry about the diff, there is extra cruft in there
because I'm been using the same xorg.conf for awhile now.
Please let me know if there is additional information I need to attach.
I also tried system-config-display --reconfig with no luck.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Acquire my notebook :)
2. Run system-config-display --reconfig
No native resolution offered
I would expect 1440 x 900 as that's the physical dispay property.

diff between 800x600 selection and what I generally use
please attach your X log file.

notes to self:
nv driver, correct panel size detection, but no mode line in the default database.
Should be sorted in rawhide, 1440x900 shows up in the resolution list for me in
Sweet. I did a system-config-display and was able to select the 1440x900 AFTER
I selected "Generic 1440x900 LCD" (This is a laptop).
Before selecting the LCD, I was only offered 800x600 and below. Is this
something that should (can) be detected automatically?

Yes. I'm working on adding the detected modes from the RANDR extension to that
initial list. Ideally you should never have to select a monitor type at all.
