Description Luis Martinez 2007-05-23 13:48:40 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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install VMPlayer.
2. Run a virtual machine (Windows 2k).
3. Change to full screen
Actual results:

Screen flickers because intel driver searches for proper resolution and
resolution is faulty changed to 1600x800 that makes part of the screen unreachable.

Expected results:

Full screen mode should be 1200x800

Additional info:
I have both tryed with and without screen effects enabled.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.
