Description of problem:
When installing (using text mode install, cd images on harddisk) i selected that
 my display should have 1600x1200 pixels of resolution at 24bit depth. When I
booted the new system however it displayed only 1024x768 pixels (24bits).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
phoebe bootdisk.img (md5 0572f7bb2a2e61474f8027ac258dd26d)

How reproducible:
Don't know, havent tried

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install
2. select 1600 x 1200 x 24
3. boot the newly installed system
Actual results:

Can you attach the generated /etc/X11/XF86config as well as /var/log/XFree86.0.log?

Comment 2 Daniel Resare 2003-01-15 22:38:32 UTC
I'm sorry, i blew that installation some days ago. The second time around I
didnt experience the problem.

Comment 3 Daniel Resare 2003-01-15 22:40:11 UTC
Did I change that to ASSIGNED? Silly me.

I'm having a similar problem with Phoebe .93...

During text based install off CD's i select that I want to use the vesa driver
for my display(because the savage driver doesn't work very well and is
autoprobed for my savage card(oddly enough :p)
Anyways, after the install, when i reboot - savage is still what has been put
into my /etc/X11/XF86Config file and as a result of that, X does not come up
properly on my system! (the driver problem has been reported elsewhere, this is
strictly for the manual changes not being stored in the configuration file)
