I just did a fresh install of Fedora 11 on my MacBook Black. When I installed Fedora, I had to use the "basic Vesa video driver" option (or something like that; the regular installer would always get stuck in the beginning of the process).
Now that I have Fedora running, I'm trying to use an external Dell monitor 22' Widescreen. However, I can't find a way to configure it with the proper resolution.
The "Configure Display Settings" (or "Display Preferences") shows the monitor as "Unknown", with a max available resolution of 1024x768 (lower than the 1680x1050 I want), refresh rate of zero.
After reading a lot of suggestions online, I tried things like xrandr and system-config-display, but to tell the truth I don't fully understand yet how these things work.
Here's my output of xrandr:
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
And here's the output of when I try to run system-config-display, which is not working for some reason:
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 376, in <module>
dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, rhpxl.videocard.VideoCardInfo())
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 641, in __init__
if len(self.xconfig.layout.adjacencies) > 1:
IndexError: index out-of-bounds
I don't know where to go from here... Thanks in advance for any help!
