Description of problem:
Nouveau (I'm using the i386 live-CD) selects 1280x960 instead of the IMHO more appropriate 1280x1024. Switching to 1280x1024 is possible without any problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Thanks for the report.

Sorry for the delay in response, can you test the build of xorg-x11-server-Xorg available from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1378977 ? I've added a quirk to fix the EDID reported by your monitor, so the correct mode should be chosen by default now.
Great, it worked. Thanks!
