Description of problem:
RC6 correctly detects Dell P991 monitor and NVIDIA GTS 2 graphics card.
However, when XFree86 is started by the installer, the installer window is
shifted rightward off the display. I can hit a button on the monitor to
recenter the display, but it takes away from the perceived quality of the product.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with Dell P991 monitor and NVIDIA GTS 2 adapter
Actual Results: installer screen shifted off right side of display
Expected Results: centered on display
After using installed system, I've discovered visible screen is smaller than
what system thinks it is. System setting->Display reports screen is 1024x768,
yet Mozilla window is larger than visible area. Using a KDE ruler set to Full
Screen Width and aligning the 0 at the left edge, the right edge clips at 1021!
