You're not giving much details. Could you please provide exact version of the xorg-x11-drv-openchrome rpm, as well as xorg conf and xorg log ? Also can you please describe what is happening when your setup is not working ? Are you using a screen connected on the VGA port or a laptop's LCD panel ? Last thing, did you try the driver from the updates-testing repo ?

Sorry about the lack of details. I mainly filed this as a reminder/ by request of jnettlet in #openchrome. The device is a Panel PC and so I don't really know if it shows up as the LCD panel of a laptop or directly vga connected. I didn't try updates-testing, however the same issue was there with F13.

Comment 5 Xavier Bachelot 2010-07-20 18:47:02 UTC
Try to add the following line in the Device section of your xorg conf :
Option "ActiveDevice" "LCD"

Comment 6 Nathanael Noblet 2010-07-22 16:11:52 UTC
Added ActiveDevice (and commented out the Options VBEModes line) but that got me a unuseable screen

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2010-12-03 13:10:31 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
