Description A.M. Kuchling 2002-07-15 14:35:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529

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.

How reproducible:
Didn't try
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-07-16 06:49:41 EDT
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.
Comment 2 A.M. Kuchling 2002-07-16 14:58:26 EDT
Since this occurs during the installation process, this bug probably belongs to 
anaconda and not to Xconfigurator. Sorry!
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-16 22:14:33 EDT
Did it automatically detect your laptop screen in previous releases, or did it
just offer the choice of a laptop LCD screen?
