Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 487309
Can't change to the resolution I selected in display utility on RHEL5
Last modified: 2012-04-18 10:33:55 EDT
Here are the test sequence:
1. change the resolution from 1280x1024 to 800x600 by display utility.
2. log-out and re-login
3. the display resolution is not changed
I checked the xorg.conf and found the disply mode still un-changed.
If I run "system-config-display --set-resolution 800x600" in terminal and found the display modes in xorg.conf had been changed successfuly and change the display resolution to 800x600 after re-login. It didn't make sense to me why have these differences. I also tried on FC5 and FC6. The resolution can be changed on FC5 successfuly by display utility, but the resolution is un-changed on FC6.
Does anyone can help to answer this issue?

I am afraid xorg-x11-drv-ast has been neglected for a long time. Assigning to developers.
Could you tell me why you think this issue relate to ast driver? We indeed had tried on ATI before and the phenomena is the same. Do you need us to try ATI or other VGA adapter again?
Besides, the xorg-x11-drv-ast still be maintained by ASPEED Technology Inc. Many server systems use the ASPEED's graphics chips, if you go the the website of SUN Micro., then you will see many models using its chips.
Should be fixed by the updates to pyxf86config and rhpxl in 5.8.
