Description Chris Runge 2001-07-09 19:36:14 UTC
Description of Problem:

Fairfax beta 1
CD-ROM installed on Dell Latitude CPx laptop -- standalone (not docked; no
external monitor). Graphical install.

X configuration detects LCD as an "Unprobed monitor" (7.1 detects it as an
LCD properly). I selected "Generic Laptop Display Driver 1024x768". After I
did that it proposed as the default resolution 1400x1050x16.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. detach laptop from external monitor/undock
2. do a graphical install

Actual Results:

(see above)

Expected Results:

1. Laptop LCD should be autodetected (as in 7.1).
2. Default resolution should not be higher than capabilities of chosen

Additional Information:

This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.

Comment 2 Chris Runge 2001-07-17 12:08:09 UTC
still an issue in beta 2

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-07-18 20:37:46 UTC
What is the video chipset/card on this laptop (look in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf)?

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-08-10 19:41:50 UTC
Any more info on this issue?

Comment 6 Chris Runge 2001-08-22 15:55:54 UTC
requested information:

class: VIDEO
bus: PCI
detached: 0
driver: Card:ATI Rage Mobility
desc: "ATI|Rage Mobility P/M AGP 2x"
vendorId: 1002
deviceId: 4c4d
subVendorId: 1028
subDeviceId: 00bb
pciType: 1

on RC 1, the LCD screen is still coming up as an unprobed monitor

Comment 7 Matt Wilson 2001-08-24 18:41:51 UTC
LCD screens are not automatically probe-able.

Comment 8 Matt Wilson 2001-08-24 18:46:49 UTC
(i.e., I had a hack that said you had a LCD screen if I detected the PCI ID of
the mobile ATI chips.  I don't know if someone broke that, though.)

Comment 9 Michael Fulbright 2001-08-31 15:13:58 UTC
Plase try with RC2 and let us know if that is better.

Comment 10 Brent Fox 2001-09-17 14:54:11 UTC
Any more info here?
