Description whampton 2001-02-25 16:30:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)

Anaconda setup X so it would only do 800x600 

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup fisher on Toshiba T8000 laptop
2. Select laptop install
3. Let the software detect Neomagic chipset and display
4. select default X as 1024x768	

Actual Results:  startx started X at 800x600, always

Expected Results:  X at 1024x768

I had to manually run Xconfigurator, let it select the neomagic chipset,
tell it custom display, display that would do 1024x768 at 60 Hz.  This
allows me to run X at 1024x768 on the built-in LCD.

There have been some neomagic fixes that happened recently. Don't know if
they have anything to do with this at all, but I thought I'd mention it.
Probably a different issue though.

Our installer team-lead thinks we should really fix this before next release.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 2001-03-05 05:43:03 UTC
Does using Xconfigurator work?  After trying, in any case, can you please
cut-and-paste /var/log/XFree86.9.log here for me to examine?

On this laptop, I am loading Wolverine in the next few days.  It is a test disk
so I'll do a fresh install. 
Right now, the disk has Windows 98 on it.  Once reloaded, I plan on retesting. 
I'll forward the 
config file following initial setup and following use of XConfigurator.  BTW,
why don't you folks 
ship the graphical XF86Setup program?

Please, *please* test the latest X locate at:


Comment 6 Preston Brown 2001-03-08 19:17:15 UTC
we have switched to the 4.0.x drivers for NeoMagic in 4.9.18 and later, tested
to be working.

Comment 7 whampton 2001-03-12 13:12:10 UTC
Tested with Wolverine -- still broken, will test with referenced package in a
few days.
