Description mail@romal.de 2007-09-26 02:15:18 EDT
Description of problem:

xorg runs in 640*350 while installing and booting, after logging in the
resolution is reset to 1280*1024

While booting and installation all dialogs (and GDM) are totaly messed up due to
the low resolution.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

f8test2 64 Bit DVD for installation and Devel updated to 2007-09-5

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

Strange thing is, that the driver see the supported resolutions from the display:

(II) intel(0): Supported Future Video Modes:
(II) intel(0): #2: hsize: 1024  vsize 768  refresh: 72  vid: 19553
(II) intel(0): #3: hsize: 1280  vsize 1024  refresh: 60  vid: 32897

The display is connected via dvi. When connecting via VGA this does not happen.

Comment 3 Dave Airlie 2007-09-26 02:47:10 EDT
Wow your monitor appears to give out bad EDID info it claims a 640x350 mode 

First detailed timing is preferred mode
(II) intel(0): clock: 25.2 MHz   Image Size:  376 x 301 mm
(II) intel(0): h_active: 640  h_sync: 688  h_sync_end 784 h_blank_end 800
h_border: 0
(II) intel(0): v_active: 350  v_sync: 350  v_sync_end 352 v_blanking: 449
v_border: 0

ouch... I wonder can we add some sort of EDID quirk to the server for this
Comment 4 mail@romal.de 2007-09-26 02:58:37 EDT

And he actually does work whith this :-O Question is, should we use this mode :-)

Or simply cut everything below 640*480 ? I don´t think there are displays or
graphics cards that can`t display standard VGA ?
Comment 5 Dave Airlie 2007-09-26 03:27:58 EDT
we have an edid quirk for this brand of monitor already.. I'll try and fix it
and let you know ...
Comment 6 mail@romal.de 2007-10-09 02:38:54 EDT
Has the fix landed in devel already ?
Comment 7 Dave Airlie 2007-11-30 00:51:10 EST
I've pushed an update into F8 updates-testing, also the next time devel rebases
from upstream the fix will appear there as well..

xorg-x11-server- will be the updates-testing rpm when it arrives.

I pulled it from koji and it works like a charm :-)

Thank you very much.
