Description Sneaky Carpet 2009-05-23 06:27:01 EDT
Description of problem:
My screen isn't properly detected when using a VGA cable instead of DVI (only have a VGA cable that's long enough for my setup), and manually setting the parameters in xorg.conf (like I've always done) is impossible because they're reset on every boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Very, at least on my setup

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make changes to xorg.conf
2. Reboot
3. Discover that the changes don't stick
Actual results:
Changes don't stick

Expected results:
Changes made to xorg.conf stick, allowing me to set the correct resolution.

Additional info:
Using Fedora 11 preview with KDE

Are you using a live image?
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:26:07 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

I ran into a similar problem on FC 11 with gnome. Later I realized that the issue was because I had installed nvidia driver from rpmfusion. From the installation there was a script '/etc/init.d/nvidia' which changes xorg.conf on reboot. Perhaps this should not be a fedora bug?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2009-06-25 09:13:53 EDT
Yeah, I've not seen any other reports of this, and I can't reproduce it.
