Description David Susco 2006-04-24 23:33:29 UTC
Description of problem:

The problem is similar to this:

I'm having the same problem with a Dell CPi A366ST however system-config-display
is the most recent for Redhat Desktop 4, 1.0.24.

I have my resolution set to 1024x768, color depth to 16 but everytime X restarts
it reverts to 800x600 and the depth stays the same.  By default the monitor type
is "unknown monitor" I have tried setting this to "Dell 1024x768 LCD" but no
luck there either.  Is this the result of the monitor choice not being correct
or something else?

Here's another weird thing though, I purposely broke the xorg.conf by enabling
dual head.  X generated a new .conf and gave me the system-config-display and
everything appeared to be 1024x768.  Then when X restarted again I got
dumped back to the login screen at 800x600 again.

NEEDINFO timeout, resolving as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.  If you are still experiencing
