Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241011
Windows Switching to full screen breaks resolution
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
When using software like VMWarare Player that lets you change to full screen
then the screen resolution goes beyond the monitor resolution, as the
experimental intel drivers rescans the best suitable resolution.
My Monitor and X resolution is set to 1200x800.
i810 driver is xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.0.0-3.fc7
kernel is 2.6.21-1.3189.fc7
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install VMPlayer.
2. Run a virtual machine (Windows 2k).
3. Change to full screen
Screen flickers because intel driver searches for proper resolution and
resolution is faulty changed to 1600x800 that makes part of the screen unreachable.
Full screen mode should be 1200x800
I have both tryed with and without screen effects enabled.
