Description of problem:
anaconda ignores "monitor" configuration option
I provided the following command in kickstart file:

monitor --monitor="LCD Panel 1024x768"

However that option was ignored in xorg.conf file and no Monitor has been
defined whatsoever.

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

Have just tried to install rawhide (both full and live disk) in a new
environment and there were no entries to be found in the Monitor section of
xorg.conf. The result was that at a certain point in the installation, my
monitor simply stated Mode not supported (90Kz x 60Hz).

Environment was AMD processor on a GA-MA78GM-S2H RS780G (ATI Radeon HD3200
OnBoard  graphics) with an LG L 1950SQ LCD Monitor.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-05-14 10:23:11 EDT
The monitor keyword is now marked as deprecated and will have no effect since we
are relying more and more on X's ability to probe for configuration automatically.
