http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi all, am running Fedora 11 x86_64 build on a Core2Duo based laptop with 6GB RAM. I have a few operating systems on here, a mixture of Sun Solaris and Linux which all show the display properly using Gnome2 apart from Fedora 11 :-( Somehow the resolution is all screwed up as the window sizes seem to be 1024x768 or 640x480 - basically they're huge in comparison to all other Gnome2 environments I have on the system! I have the latest 'stable' Xorg installed on both F11 and Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty), can't remember Ubuntu's version but F11 is 2.7...... Ubuntu should be similar. Before I forget the GFX adapter is an Intel GM4500MHD using the GM45 chipset and the screen is a 12.1". xrandr shows this: Code: # xrandr -q Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 8192 x 8192 VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) LVDS1 connected 1280x800+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 261mm x 163mm   1280x800      60.0*+ DVI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) TV1 unknown connection (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)   1024x768      60.0    800x600        60.3    640x480        59.9 already things are weird as no way can this GPU support resolutions of 8192x8192!!

monitor: Not supported Also when booted I get a strange fatal kernel error has occurred message which then sends information to the developers?? I just upgraded to the Livna repo which actually upgraded the kernel and the error went away for one boot but is now back :-( Why does this happen even?? What data should I provide since the machine I assume sent a backtrace already to the F11 team?? My current kernel: Code: # uname -a Linux Hp-Compaq-2230s 2.6.30.9-96.fc11.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Nov 4 00:02:04 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Many thanks for any help, I really appreciate it!
