Description of problem:
X11 fails to come up in an useful configuration with no xorg.conf file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime with my hardware configuration.
A machine description follows:
Macine: ASUS M70Sa 7U011G - Core 2 Duo T9300 2.5 GHz - 17" TFT
Graphic card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650; VRAM: 1GB
Display: 17" TFT 1920 x 1280
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
The screen goes white with black lines flickering.
A configured X11 server
One problem seems to be that the probing procedure fails to recognize the 1920 x
1280 resolution of the screen.
A working but suboptimal setup is to use the vesa driver at 1600 x 1200
XOrg.0.log will be attached
Created attachment 310771 [details]
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from the failed autoprobe
I am in a little dubt about the real pixel resolution of the screen. Some
sources says 1920x1280 some others among them ASUS own web pages says standard
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
