Default fglrx 7.12 resolution problem

Hi all,
My laptop has a 1400x1050 screen, always been fine. The latest
fglrx only seems to give me up to 1280x1024.
Looking in Xorg.0.log shows:
(II) fglrx(0): Supported VESA Video Modes:
(II) fglrx(0): 640x480@60Hz
(II) fglrx(0): 800x600@60Hz
(II) fglrx(0): 1024x768@60Hz
(II) fglrx(0): Manufacturer's mask: 0
(II) fglrx(0): Supported Future Video Modes:
(II) fglrx(0): #0: hsize: 640 vsize 480 refresh: 60 vid: 16433
(II) fglrx(0): #1: hsize: 800 vsize 600 refresh: 60 vid: 16453
(II) fglrx(0): #2: hsize: 1024 vsize 768 refresh: 60 vid: 16481
(II) fglrx(0): #3: hsize: 1152 vsize 864 refresh: 60 vid: 16497
(II) fglrx(0): #4: hsize: 1280 vsize 960 refresh: 60 vid: 16513
(II) fglrx(0): Supported additional Video Mode:
(II) fglrx(0): clock: 108.0 MHz Image Size: 0 x 0 mm
(II) fglrx(0): h_active: 1400 h_sync: 1448 h_sync_end 1560 h_blank_end
1688 h_border: 0
(II) fglrx(0): v_active: 1050 v_sync: 1051 v_sync_end 1055 v_blanking:
1066 v_border: 0

Does anyone know what an additional Video Mode is, and how to write an
xorg.conf which will use it?
Thank you,
Bill

Hi Bill!

I think some answers may be here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fglrx

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Fglrx

Please take note of all the resources and links mentioned in these.

May God give you strength, you may be doing a bit of "patching" before
it is all over.

Tod,

You're becoming like Karl...perhaps you shouldn't offer an answer if you
don't know.

To OP (Bill)

Try editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf

see the section that looks like this...

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1280x720"
"1152x864" "1152x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

(Note that the 'Modes' section is all on one line but will wrap into
multiple lines in this e-mail.)

Add "1400x1050" into that line (make it the first resolution because the
first listed is the first tried).

Then see what happens when you log out and log back in...I don't think
it will take a restart to change it.

Hi,

I recently run into the same problem. Bad thing: There is no mode-line
at my xorg.conf anymore (first, I thought "uh, did they get all that
fancy autoconf stuff running?", but now I think its just a .rpm bug or
something like that)

regards

Ok,

forget about modesetting, somehow fglrx won't accept that. So to get
back my sharp resolution I had to switch to VESA (radeonhd, we are
really waiting for you!)

As has been pointed out, modes doesn't work. Actually if you specify
just 1400x1050 you get a black screen - so it dos something!
I have oped to 1280 for just now, but it causes problems .

Afaik the widescreen bug (16:9 screens) was noted in the 7.12 release
notes. Revert to 7.11 if you want your original widescreen resolution
back and wait yet another month for the ati developers to fix this
appalling regression. Or try the ati or radeonhd driver. The ati driver
works fine for me on F8 & a X1300 mobile GPU. Suspend/resume even works
properly but it does not have 3D acceleration.

Patrick

I bumped my head on this one yesterday. I'm afraid my solution when I noted
the bug was to swap out my ATI card for my spare nVidia card. It's not
quite as high spec but at least it lets me use 1680x1050.
