Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 90044
Standard Widescreen LCD modes are missing
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Newer LCD panels also come in Widescreen formats. These use standardised modes
such as WXGA. The relevant sizes are not on the Red Hat 9 redhat-config-xfree86
No choices available for generic LCD panel for the sizes:
2048x1536 (QXGA) (NEC actually sell a laptop using this format!)
Modern LCD panels to be covered
Data for the modes pulled from vendor wide monitor info and standards doc stuff.
There is also 1024x480 used by some vaio picture books but this doesn't appear
to be a standard.
I assigned a similar bug to pyxf86config a week or so ago (bug #89557) but there
are some resolutions here that weren't in the other bug.
My only concern is that over time, the resolution option menu is going to get
really long. Maybe long term we need a better way of only showing the user the
resolutions that the monitor can do. In the short term, I guess simply adding
the resolutions to pyxf86config's list is the easiest thing to get these
Sending to pyxf86config.
I agree, but I'll just add them for now.
Fixed in pyxf86config 0.3.8-1. Trying to push it throught the buildsystem...
1680x1050 (WSXGA+) is an option on HP/COMPAQ notebooks
