Description Dan Taylor 2001-01-10 18:52:37 UTC
During the installation 1024x768 was selected to run.  When the system 
boots up, it was running in 800x600.  Running Xconfigurator again and 
selecting 1024x768 fixes it.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 2001-01-29 21:11:40 UTC
can I see your XF86Config-4 file from directly after installation (i.e. before
you re-run Xconfigurator and fix things up)?

This is an installer problem, assuming you installed graphically.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-01-31 19:39:48 UTC
Did you test the X configuration during the install?  If so, what color depth
did you pick?

Comment 4 Dan Taylor 2001-01-31 19:46:53 UTC
Yes we did test the X configuration during the install.  Regardless of the 
color depth selected in the install the sample screen displays 16bit (see bug# 
23717).  I'm not positive which setting the color depth was left at when we 
continued on.  I can re-test if needed.  Please advise.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-02-03 05:17:49 UTC
Did you test the configuration at 1024x768?  The color depth always being at 16
bpp is caused by our inability to probe LCDs, but that's a separate issue.  Is
there a chance that you selected 1024x768, tested that configuration, then
selected 800x600 and clicked 'Next' without testing at 800x600?

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-02-03 08:59:45 UTC
I've verified this behavior on a Compaq Presario 1700T.  Anaconda writes out a
800x600 file no matter what resolution was chosen.

Comment 7 Brent Fox 2001-02-10 05:59:35 UTC
I'm no longer seeing this in the latest internal trees.  Please reopen if the
problem persists.
