Description Robert Story 2006-04-28 23:51:27 EDT
Description of problem:
anaconda/system-config-display --noui generates extremely restrictive HorizSync
(31.5-37.9). The native resolution of the TiBook g4 (PowerBook3,2) wont work
untill the high end is at least 70.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm xorg.conf
2. system-config-display --noui
3. startx
Actual results:
x doesn't start

Expected results:
x starts

Additional info:
After getting X working and running system-config-display and setting the
monitor to a PBG4, the HorizSync is:

   HorizSync 30-100
Comment 1 Adam Jackson 2006-09-29 17:02:29 EDT
As of system-config-display 1.0.45-1 and later, we should no longer be writing
out sync lines at all, allowing the X server to probe for them automatically. 
Please test with FC6 test3 or later, and reopen if this is still an issue for you.
