Fullscreen Mode Out of Range
Last modified: 2008-02-25 15:00:05 EST
When I run glaxium in full screen mode my LCD monitor shows an error message
which says "out of range". I tried to start it in window mode and adjust the
resolution to 1600x1200 but could not find an option to do this.
There is no option to start it in 1600x1200, but you could try starting it at
1024x768, by starting it from a cmdline like this:
glaxium -f -4
But does your monitor really not support 800x600 (the default resolution used by
That would be strange I think this is an Xog bug. Anyways can you try running it
as described above?
Ah okay, I was confused with how the options worked. I've tested the different
fullscreen options and -1, -2 and -4 all work as expected. Only using -f -3
will result in an "out of range" error for my LCD monitor.
To bad that that's the default, but 800x600 is a reasonable default as this will
also work on older laptop's / modern laptop's with small screens.
Anyway not being able to display 800x600 on your monitor really is an X bug, so
I suggest you file a new bug for that. You should be able to reproduce by going
to preferences->screen resolution and choose 800x600 there (I hope).
I tried the configure display GUI from KDE and 800x600 works just fine at a
refresh rate of 94Hz or greater.
I will try using the open source nv driver before filing an X bug.
Indeed, after removing kmod-nvidia this bug goes away.
