Description of problem:
I have a Compaq P1610 monitor, and am installing RedHat 7.1 with
Xconfigurator-4.9.29-1. The install process detects all my hardware
without any problems. However, when setting up the video modes, it only
offers 4:3 ratio resolutions, even though the monitor I've told it I'm
using is a 16:10 ratio monitor.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Xconfigurator
2. Select a Compaq P1610 as your monitor
3. Look at the screen resolutions offered
X probably does not have modelines for that aspect ratio. It certainly isn't
common hardware. If you provide me with the modelines that work, I will
send them to XFree86 for possible inclusion.
I don't have one of these monitors, so you will have to provide the modelines
if you want them added. Please undefer this bug report when you supply them.
This sort of request should instead be made to the XFree86 team
by mailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Woops, wrong resolution...
