Description Joshua Buysse 2000-12-21 07:54:57 UTC
We've got a 1600x1200 LCD, a 1400x1050, and a 1024x768 in the X 
configuration, but it doesn't list a 1280x1024 LCD panel (one of the most 
common resolutions).  

Nitpicking is kinda fun.

Assignging to a developer.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2000-12-29 04:41:13 UTC
This requires an additional entry to the Xconfigurator/MonitorsDB file. 
Something similar to:
Generic; Generic LCD Panel 1280x768; 0; 31.5-55; 40-70
I'm not sure what the sync rates should be though.  Reassigning to the owner of

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2000-12-29 04:41:57 UTC
What sync rates does your LCD monitor at 1280x768 use?

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2000-12-29 04:45:37 UTC
I meant 1280x1024...not 1280x768

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2000-12-29 04:58:50 UTC
Added an entry to MonitorsDB.  Here's the line:
Generic; Generic LCD Panel 1280x1024; 0; 31.5-67; 50-75

I believe that these rates will work.  They are within the recommended ranges
for the ViewSonic and NEC 1280x1024 LCD panels.  Brock, please verify that this

There is no selection available in GUI mode for "Generic LCD Panel 1280x1024"
under the Generic Monitors Selection ... did the entry get committed to the

Comment 7 Brock Organ 2001-01-08 15:47:32 UTC
this was tested in the qa0108.0 test tree ...

Comment 8 Brent Fox 2001-01-08 16:55:37 UTC
Yes, it got committed.  I'm guessing that Xconfigurator wasn't rebuilt, so it
didn't appear in the tree.  My fault.  I'll rebuild Xconfigurator soon.

Comment 9 Glen Foster 2001-01-11 21:04:28 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release

Comment 10 Brent Fox 2001-01-12 17:04:34 UTC
Xconfigurator has been rebuilt now.  The new monitor is in the list.  Brock,
please verify.

Comment 11 Brock Organ 2001-01-16 16:40:02 UTC
verified fix in qa0116.0 test tree ...
