Description of problem:
I did a fresh installation of Limbo on a Sony Vaio PCG-9241, and
the configuration process did not offer a checkbox for selecting an LCD
display and skipping the entry of horizontal and vertical scan rates.
(IIRC, 7.3 did offer such a checkbox on this system.) This resulted in only
640x480 resolution working after the initial install.
Nothing has changed in Xconfigurator at all since 7.3.
Are you refering to the anaconda installer? Xconfigurator is the text
mode config tool. Anaconda has its own X configuration code.
Since this occurs during the installation process, this bug probably belongs to
anaconda and not to Xconfigurator. Sorry!
Did it automatically detect your laptop screen in previous releases, or did it
just offer the choice of a laptop LCD screen?
