Xorg log

Description of problem:
I'm using F11 on a system with an Intel D845GERG2 system board and it's not detecting the correct resolution for my monitor, I get 1024x768 instead of 1280x1024. I'm connecting via a VGA (15-pin D-Sub) connector.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load System->Preferences->Display
2. Look at the Resolution drop-down list.
Actual results:
Only resolutions up to 1024x768 displayed.

Expected results:
Resolution 1280x1024 to be displayed (and selected by default).

Additional info:
I've tried xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.8.0-3.fc12.i686 and this is a step backwards, I only get 800x600.

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.

Your monitor isn't returning any EDID information.  It's a bit hard to guess what the right thing to do is when it won't tell us the right thing to do.
