display settings don't match hardware
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
Monitor types not remembered after configuring them with system-config-display.
Version-Release number of selected component:
rpm -q system-config-display
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6 - both monitors on dual head Matrox Graphics card displaying same
screen both set to 1600x1200 (everything is ok so far).
2. Run system system-config-display
3. Primary monitor was auto detected correctly, a Dell P1110. The second monitor
is not auto detected, and is not in the list. It is a KDS monitor.
4. Add the second monitor as a Generic CRT Display - Monitor 1600x1200
5. It doesn't allow the Resolution of greater than 800x600 for the second
Generic monitor even though it was selected as a monitor with a higher resolution
6. Restart X Windows
Monitor Type is set to: "Unknown monitor"
Second Monitor type is: "Monitor 1280x1024"
Primary monitor should be set to a Dell P1110
Second monitor type should be set to to Generic CRT monitor 1600x1200. And
should be able to be set to a resolution of higher than 800x600
