One of the problems I'm having is that the 12.2 DVD seems to do odd EDID behaviour. When I boot from the 12.2 DVD I get
Analog Out of range 46.4kHz / 43 Hz
Yes, I know there should be a "F3" for screen size. I don't even see that. This out of range is immediate.
A few notes:
1. It happens with *All* my LCD screens.
2. If I dig out an old CRT from my closet and plug that in, then I see the boot screen and can work with the install.
3. If I try installing an old version of openSuse, 11.2 or 11.4 for example, I don't have this problem with the LCD screens.
4. I've tried a few other distributions and they don't have this problem either.
My primary LCD monitor is an LG1953. Fedora 15/16/17 seem to boot in (when I use text-mode) 1024x768 (that what the gfxmode is set to for grub) the see the EDID and jump to the higher resolution.
I see articles like this http://ubuntuguide.net/monitor-signal-out-of-range-problem-in-ubuntu-12-04-p... but that only applies AFTER the system is up.
Any ideas, guys?
