Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207804
monitor out of range in many instances
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
If I try to Install FC6T3 Graphically, I will get an out of range error in the
monitor. The out of range frequencies vary with each failure, The vertical
Frequency goes out way beyond 100 HZ. The Horizontal frequency also seems to be
way out of specified values.
With X installed, I first noticed this problem whewn launching the game
viruskiller. The monitor showed the out of range. I then checked the working FC5
xorg.conf and the values seemed to be rational.
Afterwards, I ran X -configure which made a new configuration in /root. I
replaced the old xorg.conf file with the newly generated file. It works, but
does not show the 1280x1024 resolution that I used before with FC5. It gives me
1152x864 at 75HZ that works. If I change the resolution to a lower resolution
like 1024x768, I get the out of range displayed on my monitor.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GUI installs, Launch game that changes screen resolutions, change to a lower
setting via screen resolution in system > Preferences.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install GUI or switch screen resolutions.
2. Try to use X -configure and replace once working xorg.conf
3. try to reconfigure X with system-config-display --reconfig
Each method shows errors. S-c-display does not even get the monitor type
correctly with this version of X. It was able to get the correct monitor
previously with FC5 version of X
Being able to install with the GUI, being able to play games which switch screen
resolutions, the ability to adjust screen resolutions to desired values.

Previous startup log when error occured
This log was generated when I lowered my screen resolution.
One note, I do not have a monitor hooked up to the nvidia video amd am not using
This bus seems very similar to these bugs :
I checked out the reports and feel that they all are related to the config file
and the way the mga driver is compiled for FC6. Thanks for the info.
Also, I added reference to this bug within the two other bug reports. If bugs
are combined and a solution is found, I'm fine with this approach.

Launching GL-117 game
I got another out of range error when trying to launch a game. I am able to use
X with the mga driver after changing the maximum vertical from 190 Hz to 70 Hz.
This is the first failure after the X -configure file was generated. I have no
luck with s-c-display doing anything useful.
Does xorg-x11-drv-mga v1.4.2 fix this bug ?
Is this bug related to #203570 ?
The problem is corrected by version 1.4.2 that you compiled and made available
for bug 203570. I guess we can mark this as a duplicate, since different
problems are corrected by the same fix. Marking as duplicate of 203570.
