Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444182
problem with 1024x768 resolution on MGA G200e
Last modified: 2012-04-26 13:51:55 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed 5.2 Snapshot 7 x86_64 on a Intel Tylersburg EP / Nehalem B0 SDV. It
came up in 1024x768 according to s-c-d. But the display was oddly squished
horizontally as if it was really a widescreen resolution being displayed on my
4x3 screen. It looked bad as if the refresh was very poor as well.
I switched to 800x600 which came up fine, restarted X. Now 1024x768 is not an
option in s-c-d.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mga driver version 1.4.2-7.el5, but not sure what component this is really in
Only saw once on install so far.
Same thing on i386. Running xclock with -geometry I've convinced myself that the
actual resolution is 1280x768.
Same thing on Fedora 9 Preview i386, FWIW.
Ah, sorry, on F9p s-c-d recognizes the resolution as 1360x768. Can't seem to
successfully change to lower res with s-c-d.
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.

X log after I had lowered the resolution
Created attachment 306304 [details]
X log after starting with no xorg.conf present
This reproduced the problem, the resolution X decided to run at was weirdly
Almost certainly fixed since.
