I noticed a few updates to the xorg files so I tried runlevel 5 again.  I now
get a GUI.  My monitor still freaks out and I get this "input not supported" box
running around my screen but it is over the desktop.  I have to restart my
monitor for the box to go away.  

Comment 6 2008-08-23 16:42:53 UTC
Any other ideas on this ticket?  I have a display on the GUI side of the house but I still have the roaming box saying "Input Not Supported" on my screen.

Sorry, NEEDINFO against developers is usually not the best idea. We will get to this bug, when we can.

Comment 8 2008-10-15 01:44:07 UTC
Among other things, there was a resolution issue.  Still working towards a local solution.
