Description Fred New 2002-08-12 11:20:53 UTC

Description of problem:
The NEC MultiSync V520 doesn't appear in the list of known monitors for
redhat-config-xfree86.  The one we own is slightly older than 2 years, so I
don't think it should be missing because of its age.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Gnome, Foot -> System Tools -> Display
2. Advanced tab
3. Click "Configure..." for Monitor

Actual Results:  My NEC MultiSync V520 monitor doesn't probe or appear in the list.

Expected Results:  To have my monitor type appear when I click "Probe Monitor"
or to have it available in the list somewhere.

Additional info:

I believe Xconfigurator used to probe this as a NEC V521b.

Reassigning to kudzu

I'd need the MonitorDB entry for this monitor to add it.

Comment 3 Fred New 2002-08-13 11:18:44 UTC
I have built the following manually:

NEC; NEC MultiSync V520; nec251d; 31.0-70.0; 55.0-120.0; 1

I determined the "nec251d" recognition string by looking at a Windows 98
registry.  Is there a Linux utility that will display this?

This is a Plug&Play monitor, so I think earlier versions of Red Hat Linux showed
this as a nec251d, not the "NEC V521b" I mentioned above.

If you are going to change MonitorsDB, could you sort the NEC section?  It has
two MultiSync subsections, so it was difficult to determine that my MultiSync
V520 wasn't in the list while using redhat-config-xfree86.

added in 0.44-1.
