Up to Fedora 11, the monitor could be run at a resolution of 1600x1200;
with ".fc12" the maximum resolution is 1152x864.
Any changes I make in system-config-display are not recognized.
That's expected, s-c-d cannot configure RandR 1.2-based drivers
correctly. Use 'xrandr' at the command line or gnome-display-properties.
nothing of note in the error logs.
What do I have to do to use the monitor at 1600x1200?
Try 'nomodeset' as a kernel parameter, if this is a recent thing. If
that fixes it, file a bug explaining the symptoms and the workaround.
