Description Scott Lamb 2006-08-19 06:19:21 UTC
Description of problem:

After configuring X11 in the firstboot thing, it comes up as 1280x1024 instead of the 1920x1200 I'm 
expecting. Xorg.0.log includes this text:

    (--) NV(0): Panel size is 1280 x 1024
    (II) NV(0): Mode "1920x1200" is larger than BIOS programmed panel size of 1280 x 1024.  Removing.

My hardware is:

* Asus A8N-VM CSM motherboard with onboard GeForce 6150. lspci says:
  name: 00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge (rev a2)
  id (-n): 00:05.0 0300: 10de:0240 (rev a2)

* Dell 2405FPW LCD monitor (1920x1200), connected through DVI

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

* xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-8
* xorg-x11-drv-nv-

Additional info:

I found an Ubuntu bug for what may be the same problem: <
+source/xorg/+bug/5801>. They asked for diagnostic output from a bunch of tools (xresprobe, 
ddcprobe, vbetool) which don't seem to be included in Fedora Core or Extras.

I just noticed that there are updated packages available, so I tried them:


same problem.

Comment 4 Scott Lamb 2006-08-19 06:39:51 UTC
Just saw bug 160893 which seems to be this same problem. Missed it the first time because it's marked 
CANTFIX. That's disappointing...
