SOLUTION: Re: FC3: ViewSonic VX910 not found



Lon,

Thanks for responding.

What I ended up doing was to create an entry in the /usr/share/hwdata/MonitorsDB
file for my VX910:


ViewSonic; ViewSonic VX910; VS10162; 24-82; 50-85

The third entry was the model number (which may not be the EISA ID).
I then run the "system-config-display" command and choose the VX910.
Next I edit the /etc/X11/xorg.config file (actually the first time I restarted
X and got the message "Out of Range" on the screen) and change the line
from:


VertRefresh  50.0 - 85.0
and
Modes    "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"


to:


VertRefresh  50.0 - 75.0
and
Modes    "1280x1024"

(One could have changed the value in the MonitorsDB file, but it really is 85
and I guess my video card can not handle it).


Now I get 1280x1024.

To sum up, my /etc/X11/xorg/config file contains(plus other stuff):


Section "Monitor"
       Identifier   "Monitor0"
       VendorName   "ViewSonic"
       ModelName    "ViewSonic VX910"
       HorizSync    24.0 - 82.0
       VertRefresh  50.0 - 75.0
       Option      "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
       Identifier "Screen0"
       Device     "Videocard0"
       Monitor    "Monitor0"
       DefaultDepth     24


SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 Modes "1280x1024" EndSubSection EndSection

I've got FC3 on a system with a ViewSonic VX910. When I configure
the display, it comes up with a VX900 and there is no VX910
listed in the list of supported displays. Trouble is, the
VX900 only goes upto 1152x864 where as the VX910 goes to
1280x1024.

How can I instruct Fedora that I wish to have a 1280x1024 screen?
Is there an update available that also lists the ViewSonic
VX910?




Not sure about the update bit, but here are my monitor and screen
sections of /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor"
       Identifier   "Monitor0"
       VendorName   "ViewSonic"
       ModelName    "VX910"
       HorizSync    30.0 - 75.0
       VertRefresh  59.0 - 61.0
       Option      "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
       Identifier "Screen0"
       Device     "Videocard0"
       Monitor    "Monitor0"
       DefaultDepth     24
       SubSection "Display"
               Viewport   0 0
               Depth     16
               Modes    "1280x1024" "800x600" "640x480"
       EndSubSection
       SubSection "Display"
               Viewport   0 0
               Depth     24
               Modes    "1280x1024" "800x600" "640x480"
       EndSubSection
EndSection
