http://www.wedgwood-group.com/sagem_axium_hd-l27_27-inch_lcd_tv.htm it is
Using development modesetting driver it is possible to get the correct

Logs are available in the URL in this bug along with configuration details.
Additional information / tests can be run at your request.
I am sorry, but we cannot work on the basis of information somewhere on the web.
Could you please, do it once more here. Please, attach your X server config file
(/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug
report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file
attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
Actually, the URL mentioned below seems to be non-reponsive, so I cannot even
attach the information myself. Could you please attach the files required in
comment 1? Unless you respond in two weeks (the comment 1 is already half a year
old) I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
The URL is dead as a lot of time has passed and only one or two guys seemed
interested in progressing this forward/accepting new info on it.
I am happy to regnerate and provide the logs for this bug if you feel it a
worth while bug to be worked on / resolved.
If you can reproduce this bu on supported distro (which includes FC6 of course)
then we are certainly very interested in any information on this bug. See the
instructions in comment 1 about what we need. Thank you very much.
No information requested was provided, so I close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Reporter, if you could, please, reopen with additional information.
