Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 205663
s-c-d shows wrong resolution when proper monitor is set
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:42 EST
Description of problem:
s-c-d does not display the proper resolution when first loaded. I have a SGI
1600SW monitor it has two supported resolutions 800x512 and 1600x1024. When
s-c-d first loads it lists all the other resolutions except those. I change the
monitor to use SGI 1600SW and then only 800x512 and 1600x1024 show up. s-c-d
should display these two resolutions when first loaded.
see all the wrong resolutions
click hardware change the monitor type to sgi 1600sw (even though it is already
set to this)
click settings and see the correct resolution
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
wrong resolutions are shown
correct resolutions should be shown
Should be fixed in 1.0.45-1. Please test and reopen if this is still an issue
When I run system-config-display-1.0.45-1 it says my monitor is running at
1680x1050 when it is running at 800x512.
