Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187499
Preferences ->Screen Resolution not showing all resolution options
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
The screen resolution is not displaying all of the options available. If I go
under System -> Administration -> Display I may select a resolution of 1600x
1200. If I then go under System -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution I only see
options for 1024x768 800x600 600x480.
This occurs even if I reset XWindows or reboot the machine. To troubleshoot, I
manually edited /etx/X11/xorg.conf and removed all screen resolutions except
1600x1200. I then entered init 3 (text mode) then back to init 5 to reset
xwindows. I believe the login screen is 1600x1200, but when I login with the
user account, under preferences->Screen Resolution I now see an option for
1280x1024, but not 1600x1200.
The software has correctly detected my graphics card as a GForce 6600 and my
monitor as a ViewSonic 17PS.
