Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 741204
dual head: anaconda sets resolution for both displays
Last modified: 2011-10-13 04:48:05 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to install Fedora 16 from 2011-09-23. I have dual head setup
with one monitor smaller than the other.
VGA1 1680x1050 on the left
LVDS1 1280x800 on the right and top
The anaconda graphical installer sets the resolution to
which means that anaconda screen is divided into two monitors, which
looks quite ugly. Moreover, the <next> buttons are not visible on my
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 16 from 2011-09-23, Rawhide.
The resolution is set max sum, according to capabilities of each display.
The resolution should be set to one of the screen.
This is a regression against Fedora 14 and Fedora 15.

I had this problem too when installing on a dual-head setup. Navigating forward was only possible through guesswork (I hit TAB an "appropriate" number of times to get where I thought "next" would be. It is something that should be fixed before release.
I'm also not sure this is really a duplicate as it only affects installation. (and only on Fedora 16 iirc - I don't think I had the problem installing F15)
