Description Linus Walleij 2002-07-15 15:12:22 EDT

Description of problem:
Some monitors - indeed LCD monitors most of all - have a "recommended
resolution". On LCDs it's quite obvious as the number of pixel elements are
finite. Right now the MonitorsDB does not handle this. I suggest incorporating a
way of adding suggested resolution to a line in the database, to be matched
against the available resolutions in the graphics card at configure time.
Comment 1 Linus Walleij 2002-07-15 15:14:28 EDT
Also see Bug 56080 for a bunch of LCD monitors that are to be added to the
database, by the way: "notting" are you taking over this module from "mharris"?
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-07-23 11:54:23 EDT
What is the status of adding these entries?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-23 12:53:29 EDT
? There are no entries in this bug.

At this point, it's too late to change the MonitorDB format, though.
