Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80521
Video card override in GUI install not obeyed
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
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)
Don't know, havent tried
Steps to Reproduce:
2. select 1600 x 1200 x 24
3. boot the newly installed system
graphical login screen shows up in 1024 x 768
login screen in 1600 x 1200
both graphics card (mga g400) and monitor (nokia 920c) is correctly autodetected.
Can you attach the generated /etc/X11/XF86config as well as /var/log/XFree86.0.log?
I'm sorry, i blew that installation some days ago. The second time around I
didnt experience the problem.
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)
I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time. I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide. If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
