Description J.B. Nicholson-Owens 2006-11-11 03:14:44 EST
Description of problem:
The x.org that comes with FC6 misidentifies the Sony CPD-17sf2 monitor.  As a
result, the highest resolution available is 1024x768.  Manually setting the
monitor in the Display Settings panel greatly increases the number of
resolutions available.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not sure which package to query to supply this information.

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6 on a system with a Sony CPD-sf2 (or 17sf II) monitor.
2. Notice that the available screen resolutions, by default, top out at 1024x768.
Actual results:
You can't go to a higher resolution without setting the monitor make/model in
the display settings control panel.

Expected results:
Autoconfiguration would pick the right make/model automatically.

I believe this is my old xorg.conf, the one FC6 made when I installed FC6.

My current xorg.conf.

My current xorg.conf which works well.	I made this by using the GUI program
named in the file by specifying my monitor make & model manually.

Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2007-03-28 12:36:54 EDT
Both of those logs appear to show the same result, picking the exact same mode.

Try starting X with the HorizSync and VertRefresh lines commented out of the
config file.  That should reproduce the 1024x768 limit.  Copy that
/var/log/Xorg.0.log aside, and then uncomment the sync lines and restart X, and
attach that X log.
