Unhappy Fedora Core 6 + Wide Screen Monitor (16:10)

Hey guys. I have a Hanns-G HW191D (WXGA+) monior capable of 1440*900 but I am having problem setting it to that resoultion in Fedora. When I installed FC6 it detected my monitor's refresh settings and all I had to do was tell FC I had a 1440*900 monitor and change the resolution to 1440*900. At first it seemed to work after I restarted X11, but I noticed things where a little stretched. When I checked he resolution again it had dropped down to 1280*1024. Below is my xorg.conf...


# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

EndSection

Section "Monitor"

### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:

EndSubSection
EndSection


Anyone have any idea? (I haven't tried removing all the modes from the xorg and leaving only 1440*900 because it makes no sense that it would work only that way... or does it?)

Thanks in advance!

I'd try that option.

Try it with setting the

VertRefresh 59.0 - 60.0

Many Flatscreens can be run @ 75 Hz (or even higher), but it doesn't make
sense to set the refresh rate higher than 60 Hz, i think. Setting the refresh rate
to 60 Hz could solve the problem that you describe as "things where a little
stretched." I hope this will solve your problem,

cheers - 029
