Description Bruce Orchard 2007-01-22 16:56:29 EST
Description of problem:




How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.do an installation

  
Environment:
Dell Dimension C521
Nvidia GeForce 6150LE
Dell 2007 LCD display

After installation, during boot, when the X server is activated by rhgb, no
display is generated.  Instead the monitor displays an error message:  "Out of
range signal.  Cannot display this video mode.  Change computer display input to
1600x1200@60Hz"


Expected results:

The boot display should have been displayed.

From my quick 30 second check on a machine with FC6 still installed, it looks
like 10DE:0241 was listed in /usr/share/hwdata/videoaliases/nv.xinf, but was
commented out.  The same file has it uncommented on rawhide.  This would mean
that FC6 anaconda/rhpxl/kudzu doesn't know what driver to assign for that
device, hence it picks vesa and that's what you get in the xorg.conf.

I'm sending this one over to the X driver guys for further comment.
Comment 6 Bruce Orchard 2007-01-29 12:38:12 EST
I tried changing the video driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf from vesa to nv.  That
did produce a display, but it would only run at 800x600.
Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2007-01-29 14:53:41 EST
Do you have an X log from starting with nv?  Would be interesting to know why
it's limited to 800x600.

log when running with nv driver at 800x600

The monitor is a Dell 2007FP, which is capable of 1600x1200.
Comment 9 Adam Jackson 2007-03-01 16:15:04 EST
So, vesa should be working with this setup now.

The 800x600 limitation appears to be due to non-functional DDC.  You will want
to set the HorizSync and VertRefresh values for your display in xorg.conf.
Comment 10 Adam Jackson 2007-03-12 15:21:58 EDT
Please update to xorg-x11-drv-vesa 1.3.0-4 or later, and reopen if this is still
an issue for you.
