Description David White 2003-03-01 01:25:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
RC6 correctly detects Dell P991 monitor and NVIDIA GTS 2 graphics card. 
However, when XFree86 is started by the installer, the installer window is
shifted rightward off the display.  I can hit a button on the monitor to
recenter the display, but it takes away from the perceived quality of the product.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with Dell P991 monitor and NVIDIA GTS 2 adapter

Actual Results:  installer screen shifted off right side of display

Expected Results:  centered on display

After using installed system, I've discovered visible screen is smaller than
what system thinks it is.  System setting->Display reports screen is 1024x768,
yet Mozilla window is larger than visible area.  Using a KDE ruler set to Full
Screen Width and aligning the 0 at the left edge, the right edge clips at 1021!

What files do you need to debug this?
