Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 306441
xorg garbled while booting
Last modified: 2007-12-10 15:44:11 EST
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
Steps to Reproduce:
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.

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
(II) intel(0): v_active: 350 v_sync: 350 v_sync_end 352 v_blanking: 449
ouch... I wonder can we add some sort of EDID quirk to the server for this
And he actually does work whith this :-O Question is, should we use this mode :-)
Or simply cut everything below 640*480 ? I donÂ´t think there are displays or
graphics cards that can`t display standard VGA ?
we have an edid quirk for this brand of monitor already.. I'll try and fix it
and let you know ...
Has the fix landed in devel already ?
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-188.8.131.52-36.fc8 will be the updates-testing rpm when it arrives.
I pulled it from koji and it works like a charm :-)
Thank you very much.
