Description Gerry Tool 2007-02-05 10:13:18 EST
Description of problem: When I installed f7t1, the screen resolution was limited
to 800x600 or 640x480. xorg.conf listed the driver as vesa

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fc7t1 from i386 dvd
2. log in and observe screen resolution possibilities in Control Center
3. view xorg.conf and find that driver used is 'vesa'
Actual results:
only two resolutions allowed, 800x600 and 640x480

Expected results:
Full range of resolutions up to monitor native resolution of 1600x1200

Additional info:
Changing 'vesa' to 'nv' and restarting X gave expected results.

Comment 1 Adam Jackson 2007-02-05 10:43:39 EST
Fixed in xorg-x11-drv-nv, thanks!
Comment 2 Gerry Tool 2007-02-06 10:46:15 EST
The bug was filed against xorg-x11-drv-vesa, not xorg-x11-drv-nv.  The latter
worked fine before the bug report.  It is the vesa driver that only shows two
possible resolution, 800x600 and 640x480.

The new nv driver still works fine.
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2007-05-08 12:29:26 EDT
That's fine, but we don't actually expect vesa do do better than 800x600, ever.
 If we select nv by default for this chipset, then it's irrelevant what vesa does.
