What LCD device did anaconda say it had detected?

In general we cannot detect LCDs so we have not added code to adjust the Xft
settings accordingly. I am amazed yours was detected.

I'm using a Dell 1501FP analog screen which was DCC probed.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-29 21:52:12 UTC
This would require a list of "these monitors are LCDs" which isn't very
feasible.  The defaults are reasonable for an LCD, they're just not optimized.
