Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 437203
allows for a resolution that seems like a really bad idea
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:12:51 EDT
Description of problem:
i965 attached via DVI to a Dell 20" 2005FPW.
xrandr happily lets me pick a 1920x1080 resolution. Pretty sure this display is
supposed to max out at 1680x1050.
[foo@dhcp231-48 ~]$ DISPLAY=:0 xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1680 x 1050, maximum 1920 x 1920
VGA disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TMDS-1 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 434mm
1680x1050 59.9*+ 59.9*
1280x1024 75.0 60.0 60.0
1360x768 59.8 60.0
1280x800 75.0 70.0 60.0
1152x864 75.0 75.0 75.0 70.0 60.0
1280x768 75.0 70.0 60.0
1280x720 75.0 70.0 60.0
1024x768 75.1 75.0 70.1 60.0
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 75.0 72.8 75.0 60.0 59.9
If chosen, I get a static screenshot of the desktop running at 1680x1050 while
the monitor is set to 1920x1080 (and is tinted blue.) Mouse pointer works, but
the display does not update.

I lied. Sometimes it works at that mode (but still has a bluish tint.)
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
