Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217795
rhgb window expands off the left-hand head
Last modified: 2014-08-31 19:28:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running on a dual-head Dell Precision 450, and because of bugs
(bz#217792), (bz#217788), the left head is running at 800x600. During the
rhgb part of the boot process, it goes into verbose mode because I forgot to
disable the firewall, which does not play nice with NIS. Eventually the rhgb
window stops fitting on the 800x600 screen and starts spilling over onto the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Watch the displays.
After a while the X in Linux gets split across both heads.
Linux should remain on one head so it is easy to read.
