Description of problem:
After configuring X11 in the firstboot thing, it comes up as 1280x1024 instead of the 1920x1200 I'm
expecting. Xorg.0.log includes this text:
(--) NV(0): Panel size is 1280 x 1024
(II) NV(0): Mode "1920x1200" is larger than BIOS programmed panel size of 1280 x 1024. Removing.
My hardware is:
* Asus A8N-VM CSM motherboard with onboard GeForce 6150. lspci says:
name: 00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge (rev a2)
id (-n): 00:05.0 0300: 10de:0240 (rev a2)
* Dell 2405FPW LCD monitor (1920x1200), connected through DVI
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I found an Ubuntu bug for what may be the same problem: <https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/
+source/xorg/+bug/5801>. They asked for diagnostic output from a bunch of tools (xresprobe,
ddcprobe, vbetool) which don't seem to be included in Fedora Core or Extras.

I just noticed that there are updated packages available, so I tried them:
Just saw bug 160893 which seems to be this same problem. Missed it the first time because it's marked
CANTFIX. That's disappointing...
