Description Doncho Gunchev 2007-03-03 19:28:31 UTC
Description of problem:
In it's current implementation 919resolution's init script can set only one 
video mode (and the last update deleted my custom init script).

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

How reproducible:
look at /etc/rc.d/init.d/915resolution

Expected results:
should be able to set multiple resolutions (ex: 8 15/16 24 32 bit color ones)

Additional info:
I will attach a patch for /etc/rc.d/init.d/915resolution and a new example 
configuration file for /etc/sysconfig/915resolution that allows arbitry number 
of resolutions to set.

Here's the example /etc/sysconfig/915resolution config file (should I attach 
it as a file?). The second example is from my laptop (Acer Aspire 5610).

# Modes to overwrite, format: RESOLUTIONS=("mode X Y [bits/pixel] [htotal] 
[vtotal]" ...)
# examples:
# RESOLUTIONS=("58 1680 1050")

#     "49 1280 800 16" \
#     "58 1280 800 32" \

I no longer care about this because the X11's new intel driver works fine for 
me (fc7 & fc8t1). Feel free to close if no one else needs this (someone?).
