Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439324
Resolution problems, refresh problems
Last modified: 2008-04-04 21:21:23 EDT
Description of problem:
With this new beta version Fedora 9, my NEC MultiSync E1100+ is being pushed to
higher lines per screen. Also the display is shifted on the screen at the
adjusted resolution (1024x768). At high resolution, display is about 2 cm to the
left, and with adjusted resolution, about 1.5 cm to right. (Freq set to 85).
Just to put this in context. On the same system I have Fedora 7, Fedora 8 (both
64 bits, XP, and PCLINUXOS). These are well behaved.
Using root and attempting to set display logon resolution to 1024 x 768,
(monitor can do 1920 x 1200), the display does not retain settings and returns
to some default value. The keyboard does not retain settings of CA(FR). It
returns to USA value. However, as normal user, the keyboard settings are
respected. It is for Root and display that X does not retain settings.
I am writing this from my Fedora 8 system, as the keyboard mapping is correct.
There are or may be conflicts between X and compiz/Gnome on this hardware.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9 March 25, following all updates.
consistent problem. I will delete xorg.config file and see if X recreates it
Steps to Reproduce:
My hardware. Intel d945gnt motherboard, 3.5g memory, 330g hard disk, Intel d930
dual core cpu. Standard mouse. Monitor is NEC MultiSync E1100+.
The logon screen does not fill the width of the CRT (20inch crt).
As this is beta, will gladly accept test patches. I work during the day. This is
my personal desktop machine. Email address is email@example.com
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

I am having problem with keyboard setting.
Install FC9 beta.
Update all pakaces.

XORG.CONF after a reboot of system.
The above is my resulting xorg.conf after a few problems.
Note. In my system, deleting xorg.conf did not result in it's recreation.
I will wait a few days for updates and hopefully, the syntax problem will be
resolved in a new update.
I am testing with the 32 bit system as I want to also test the codecs from
livna, etc. Otherwise I would reinstall with 64bit version.
If you need 64 bit version, I will overwrite and do a 64 bit install.
Leslie, could we get that both /var/log/Xorg.0.log (with and without xorg.conf)
as well, please?
Could you also please file a new bug for your keyboard troubles? We try to have
one bug per one issue -- any other organization of bugs would gets us into
pretty bad mess, I am afraid. Thank you.
Flóki, I don't understand how does your issue with keyboard relates to this bug,
which is about display problems, if I understand it correctly. Could you please
file a new bug (and attach there all the files which got here) for your issue?
Thank you very much.
I will reboot to peel off the /var/log/xorg.0.log. As I stated, I deleted the
xorg.conf (moved to desktop), and a new one was not created.
I believe that Floki and I have the same keyboard problem, only the keyboard
layout/language is different. Floki has detected a colon syntax error where I
presume there should be a semi-colon.

I have filed bug for keyboard
I have no display problems
First name for bug was differt
Changing refresh speed from 85 to 75, while maintaining size corrects the shift
Updates received today (problem reported + 1 day) appears to have fixed the problem.
Why 75hz refresh for F9 but 85hz for f8 and f7?
The slower refresh rate does not impact usability. In fact, the difference
between the 75hz and the other software versions refresh rate is not noticable
as I am not using the system for gaming.
