Hi

I was trying to install FC5 on a Dell XPS with a Dell 2001FP (1600x1200) monitor. However, during installation I can only see a part of the screen the rest is out of bounds.

This consistently happened to me with fc5t2 fc5t3 and fc5, with my viewsonic vg191 1280x1024. The problem is the DVI connection. The graphical installation works perfectly if I connect it by the vga connector.

The dvi connector causes several problems also after the installation, which can be solved by adding the line

        Option      "MergedFB" "false"

in the Device section of your xorg.conf. I filled a couple of bug reports on it:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=181907

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5991


Hope it will work for you too.
