Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23718
Display incorrectly set to 800x600
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
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.
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.

Did you test the X configuration during the install? If so, what color depth
did you pick?
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.
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?
I've verified this behavior on a Compaq Presario 1700T. Anaconda writes out a
800x600 file no matter what resolution was chosen.
I'm no longer seeing this in the latest internal trees. Please reopen if the
