Created attachment 347804 [details]

Description of problem:
After installing F11 from the DVD, the display properties show only the 800x600 and 640x480 options.

Will attach dmesg and Xorg.0.log. Will also test with nomodeset and report.

I don't have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf

With nomodeset=1 the display only goes to 1024x768. Still not what the monitor is capable of doing

What display is this?  It looks like we're not getting EDID from it at all.
Comment 5 Amit Shah 2009-06-29 12:28:52 EDT

I attached another monitor, an old 15" CRT (also samsung). That too could only do 800x600.

(also: all the F11 installs I've tried are 64-bit. I've not yet tried a 32-bit install; though it doesn't sound like a problem with the bitness.)
Comment 6 Amit Shah 2009-07-16 02:05:36 EDT
Is there any hope for this to work on this monitor at all?
Comment 7 Amit Shah 2009-07-16 03:08:23 EDT
In other words, can the EDID requirement be worked around and a custom resolution be specified? (I tried making a minimal xorg.conf but that didn't work.)
Comment 8 Amit Shah 2009-08-13 07:44:17 EDT
Actually I could get 1280x1024 by using an xorg.conf and getting the modeline from 'cvt' output. Works with kms enabled as well as disabled.

Comment 10 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 13:31:48 EST
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 hardware bug: monitor doesn't expose EDID information.
