Fedora 10, CRT monitor is capable only for 800x600, 60Hz incorrectly
Last modified: 2009-02-24 21:58:14 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora 10 kernel is incapable of reading CRT monitor DPMS information, and thus defaults to 800x600, 60Hz.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always during boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use CRT monitor with EDID minor version 0.
3. "EDID has minor version 0, which is not between 0-3"
dpms information is not read by the kernel, EDID data is ignored.
EDID minor version 0 should be accepted and EDID data should be parsed.
The attached patch that allows minor version 0 works for me.
During boot, CRT monitor will get 1280x1024, 75Hz and it looks good.
Created attachment 327162 [details]
The patch enables EDID minor version 0 for me, and fixes the problem for me.
Yup, this looks like a legitimate bug. I'll jam it into rawhide and F10.
Applied to rawhide and F-10 and it'll be in the next uploads. Thanks!
