This is my first email message to this group, so please bear with me or
direct me to where I need to go to report this "bug".
PC: VA Linux System, 600Mhz PIII
Video: Cirrus GD5480
OS: Fedora releases 6/7/8.
GDM was able to locate the cirrus chipset and xorg.conf shows:
The problem here, is that the DefaultDepth is too high for cirrus chipsets
that cannot support color depths higher than it is capable of, so GDM will
fail to find a working screen resolution it can support.
The following shows what had to be done to get the GDM working and
I have found that even with the DefaultDepth set to 16, it is not sufficient
to ignore the Modes as it must specify supported screen resolutions to
ensure a successful GDM startup.
Viewport 0 0
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480
