Docking station and X issue.
I'm having an issue with a laptop with Fedora Core 5 on it. I installed it today and everything worked great on the laptop. It has a wide screen and the resolution was set to 1280x800. After attaching it to the docking station and booting into linux, the video was off (it is not a wide screen). In the desktop config, only 1280x800 was listed and the refresh rate was showing a negative number. I looked at the xorg.conf file and found nothing suspicious.
I ran the display utility with FC5 (system-config-display) and set the monitor to to the Dell FP that its using, and changed the resolution to 1280x1024. I restarted X and nothing had changed. I rebooted linux and nothing changed. I'm not sure how to get out of this state, 1280x800 isn't even in the config, yet that is what it loads to.
