If they're not there already, perhaps adding the appropriate modeline to the "Monitor" section along with "1280x1024" in the Modes line of the "Screen" section of your xorg.conf file will help.

I set my screen size to 1280x1024 in my xorg.conf

This worked fine up thru Fedora 11 (I dont currently have running copies
of F12 or F13 to test it there) but it DOES NOT WORK in Fedora14.
In Fedora14 I get 1024x768 with or without the xorg.conf.

Now my actual screen is behind a KVM so that is part of the problem, if I
connect the monitor directly to the computer everything works correctly
and I get a screen size of 1280x1024,

So my question.
Is there some way to FORCE X11 to run at 1280x1024 in Fedora14, independent
of any tests it may make of the screen?*

Having something to override this (incorrect) behavior would be REALLY helpful.

I keep several old versions of Fedora around for testing of some software,
so PLEASE dont tell me to just move to the most recent release.

Not his fault, he wrote plenty of interesting stuff though.
Fabio attitude still isn't that horrible regarding feedbacks, Rigo got
created more or less because the previous UI got a sound "it sucks".

His quite short and a bit extreme reaction probably is due having lots
of unhappy user complaining at him for some issue with avahi (hangs in
bonjour now and then) and pulse (skype freezing randomly anyone).

If there are solutions somebody will use them, if people are aware of
them and doesn't get too hard. I did like the concept about pulse and
even wrote support for pulse in a certain fringe software you might use.

The pulse concept is quite good, some corner cases and some design
issues make it annoying at time. The fact some of them are consider
"features" or "design" obviously make the whole thing less nice.

No, he is pretty damn good in getting interesting concepts, having
people sold on them and then you need 5 years to have the audio seldom
crash, bonjour seldom kill pidgin and so on.

Till it is some minor annoyance that is comparable to not having the
feature or the same to other feature provider (dmix isn't exactly great
as well) you surely can live with it.

I used to do that and it was working sort of fine even if it was
crashing in dbus...

As said, if they are minor annoyances most people would just cope with them.

A - "Skype hangs because pulse? oh well, let's reload it no biggie"
B - "AAaargh I missed the important confcall because #%$#@ skype hang
due pulse, I hate YOU Lennart!"

A and B are different reactions from the same small issue.

I recall when the whole thing got initially reported and it was "pulse
eats my batter" and if you consider that the stock pulse on ubuntu
oneric eats about a *least* 10% cpu on imx51 due funny resampling loops
you know something needed some more attention. I guess I'm digressing.

The main issue is that udev best replacement so far is mdev plus some
additional helpers to let applications using libudev or the dbus
interface still get compatibility.

So having udev merge with systemd is quite in the shovel meet throat side.

People that had and have some bad experience with pulse and avahi or
directly with Lennart stubborn and abrasive personality can be *quite*
concerned about this "vertical" and linux-only approach.

If you consider that in 2 weeks the whole thing went from "udev moves to
systemd since is easier for us, but not be concerned udev can build
stand alone" to "udev stand alone is unsupported" you can see that isn't
that simple and lots of people might start to get angry.

I wonder if Dolphin is generating thumbnails/preview indexes at the
same time you're trying to play, causing resource contention. I wonder
if you can disable thumbnail generation by Dolphin or remove the
association it has with video files and mplayer.

Sometimes it does that, but that would happen when I play from the command
line, too. And now it even works from Dolphin, when it is set to open
mplayer in a terminal. So this cannot be the problem. And even if it
were, avoiding thumbnails would be a bad workaround only, such operations
should not affect video playback.

Maybe this is somehow related to the other problem I had with mplayer2
only, using 100% CPU when idle, only when started from a file manager.
