Description Brian Ryner 1999-10-05 00:04:12 UTC
When I had the installer test the X configuration, it apparently used a quite high resolution that was virtually unreadable on my monitor. Since it already detects the monitor type, would it be possible for it to make a reasonable assumption about display resolution from the size?

This is not a bug. The Red Hat installation uses a reasonably LOW resolution for X during the install. If for some reason this doesn't work on an obscure system, that's what the text installer is there for. Type "text" <enter> when the Red Hat CD/disk boots up.

I'm not referring to the resolution used *during* the install, that was just fine. What I am referring to is the resolution that it wants to use for X *after* the install, i.e. the mode that it switches to when you click "Test this configuration" after it detects your video card and monitor.
Comment 3 Jay Turner 1999-10-20 18:18:59 UTC
There is a customize X button in the configuration which allows you to select which resolution your X session starts in, so this is really not a bug. The installer will default to the highest resolution which your video card and monitor will support . . . it is up to the user to select something different if that is not what they are looking for. ------- Additional Comments From 10/21/99 11:41 ------- There is really a problem with the X configuration during install... When the screen is detected as a plug 'n play monitor the refresh is too high for the monitor... Why do not include in the customize fonction the screen choice ( shown only with non plug'n play monitor ) I had A NOKIA 17 inches and I was just unable to set my resolution during installation.
