Well, it's good to know it can be done -- already. I had a
problem with an LCD monitor on my first install of FC1, so bad that I
eventually went back to RH9 until the developers got to that monitor.
Sorry I'm of no help, but I do have a
question for you on this monitor & Fedora: Have you found a way to get
the monitor to actually display any of the text mode terminals (say
alt-control-1) without going to sleep because the signal is out of
range? I've had the monitor for about two months now, and I'm frustrated
that text mode access is out of visible reach, and the scaling settings
don't seem to solve the problem.
Unfortunately, I know nothing whatever of those terminals. I just
keep a gnome-terminal on workspace #1, with half a dozen tabs open, and
do everything CLI from there -- unless I want to use the machine I'm on
to work on another. But even then, all I do is put another gnome-
terminal, with different background colors, on a different workspace.
I *have* seen this monitor give me an impaired view just long
enough to let me log in, and then put itself relentlessly to sleep; and I
have not found any way to overcome that. I'd also be glad to know if
there is one -- maybe ssh into the machine from a better-adjusted one,
become root, and edit xorg.conf; but I've tried that a couple times
without success ....
Btw, with that spelling, are you related to our family friend Kay
