Laptop monitor won't go 16:9 using 3.8.3 kernel
Using 64-bit -current, a rather odd problem. This didn't happen with 3.8.1, and is solved by reverting to 3.7.10 as well.
Everything seems to be normal during boot, but when I log in (I'm using E17 and slim) the monitor goes 4:3. I tried KDE, and it also starts in 4:3 although once everything is loaded up it abruptly switches to 16:9.
The hardware is:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
But if that was the problem I don't think it would solve itself in KDE. I also don't think it's an X problem, as the console is also 4:3, albeit with the left side of the monitor used instead of the centre.
