Description Jay Fenlason 2006-11-29 22:37:03 UTC
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 
second screen. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.reboot fenlason-lab1.boston.redhat.com 
2.Watch the displays. 
Actual results: 
After a while the X in Linux gets split across both heads. 
Expected results: 
Linux should remain on one head so it is easy to read.
