Description Brent Holden 2009-03-13 03:23:56 UTC

Following instructions at:

While testing the multihead functionality, you cannot mirror screens of a different resolution correctly.  The following error was shown:
Couldn't find a suitable configuration of screens.

Also, screens that have the same resolution are not displayed properly on the secondary screen.  Changing refresh frequency did not help.  Even though 50 is displayed in g-d-p, it doesn't present this as an available frequency in xrandr.

See attached xrandr outputs from my workstation with this monitor, and my T60 with this monitor hooked up.

Any luck with that Xorg.*.log?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

[This is a bulk message for all open Fedora Rawhide Xorg-related bugs. I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

I've recently moved to Fedora 12 where this bug is thankfully not an issue.

I was not able to test the errata posted by Matej, but this bug appears to be resolved by version 2.9.x of the Intel driver.

Comment 10 Chris Campbell 2009-12-16 23:55:17 UTC
Brent, thank you very much for your efforts in both reporting the original bug and in replying later (quite a few do not). According to your Comment #9, this bug has disappeared when upgrading to Fedora 12. Setting STATUS of CLOSED NEXTRELEASE
