  1. D800 1920 x 1200 screen with redhat / fedora

    I've taken my nice new Dell D800 and loaded up
    fedora on it, after much messing about it is
    displaying at 1920 x 1200 however it looks
    very manky.

    I think this is due, to it stretching the
    screen out, raher then using a nice proportional
    font. My modeline is :-

    Section "Modes"
    Identifier "16:10"
    # 1920x1200 @ 100.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 127.10 kHz; pclk: 337.58 MHz
    Modeline "1920x1200" 162 1920 1984 2176 2480 1200 1201 1204 1250

    Can anyone offer me a line that will work better then this. I would HATE
    to have to load up XP Pro back on it, but I really can't use the box
    like it is.

    Regards

    Matt

    Are you sure that you have the WUXGA screen that has a native display of
    1920 X 1200? I think that the D800 comes in two flavors - WXGA with a
    native resolution of 1280 X 800 and the WUXGA. My first guess would be that
    you have the WXGA, not the WUXGA. That would account for the poor display
    at a non-native resolution for the LCD.
