Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 242371
Black bar in wide screen laptop with xorg-x11-drv-i810 intel driver
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem:
With Bug 202476 causing problems in Fedora Core 6, I upgraded today to Fedora 7
with a hope that it would be better.
The resolution looks correct (1280x768), but there is a black bar in the right
side of the screen cutting the visible area to 1024x768.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is Lifebook P7010. The screen resolution is 1280x768.

It seems that it gets the LVDS panel size wrong.
xrandr -q says this:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1360 x 1360
VGA connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right) 0mm x 0mm
1360x768 59.8 60.0
LVDS connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right) 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 59.2 + 85.0 75.0 70.1 60.0*
800x600 85.1 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 85.0 72.8 75.0 59.9
TMDS disconnected (normal left inverted right)
Attaching new Xorg.0.log that has ModeDebug on.
Any documentation about configuring RandR?
This sound like the same thing:
I take that comment #4 back, it doesn't sound exactly the same thing.
OK, I checked out latest xf86-video-intel git repository, compiled it (commit
0984c1fc0963f1ebab31f5b8fce5ad4c387fbd2c), replaced the original intel_drv.so
with the compiled one and now it works ok.
Can you try the intel driver in xorg-x11-drv-i810 2.0.0-4 in rawhide?
If this works I'll submit it as an update to F-7.
Yes, looks OK.
