Description Andrew M. Patterson 2005-05-13 23:25:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
When I went to change the monitor display resolution settings the system crashed and would not recover. I was using FEDORA CORE 4 Test 3. I have an
NVidia GForce 64 Mb AGP Video Card on a Pentium 4 System. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 2.6.11

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 4 Test 3 on Intel Pentium 4 with NVidia GForce 64 MB AGP Card 
2. Log in as the Root
3. Set the Video setting higher than 768 x 1024
4. Restart GDM and try to log in

Actual Results:  System blacked out and cannot be recovered. 

Expected Results:  Settings should have changed and display area of screen should have increased when GDM X Display restarted.

Wrong component - XFree86 was obsoleted by xorg-x11 in FC2 and later.
Changing components...
