Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222265
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem: The X server seems to be having an issue. I am using a
Mercury Intel 815e chipset with 128mb ram and an 80 gb harddrive. After
installation, the system wouldnt go to init 5 runlevel. So configured the X
server, and after doing that, the X server would start, but the diaplay, in
both 800* and 1024* resolutions wouldnt come full screen. It comes in a cinema
scope sort of effect. The monitor and the videocard are being detected
The display becomes normal if i log into GNOME and manually select the refresh
rate of the screen to 60 hz. But the settinsga re not saved. Have to do this
everytime i log into GNOME.
THe same option, when tried in KDE doesnt work.
Besides, after the loggin screen, when i try to log into any of the terminals,
on hitting cntrl-alt-f1 or f2.... the screen remains blank with a small white
line blinking at the middle of the screen
I can log in, typing root and the admin password, and once i log in, the
display comes back to normal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): fedora core 6
How reproducible: every time i try logging in
Steps to Reproduce:
2. get to the loggin screen
3. the screen vertical and horizontal aspect ratio's are messed up, and
pressing cntl-alt-f1 brings up a blank screen
as mentioned earlier
should be getting the aspect ratios right and the cnlt alt f1 should bring me
to the unix prompt
