Details

An updated xorg-x11-drv-vesa package that fixes a bug is now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The xorg-x11-drv-vesa package provides the X.Org X Windows System 11 vesa video
driver.

This updated xorg-x11-drv-vesa package fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the native screen resolution (1366x768) could not be set
on Dell Precision M4500 Mobile Workstation laptop models when using the vesa
video driver. This problem is caused by VBIOS limitations due to its inability
to work with floating point numbers. This issue has been fixed: the next closest
VBIOS supported screen resolution (1360x768) can now be used for Dell M4500
laptop models. (BZ#614960)

All users of xorg-x11-drv-vesa are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which resolves this issue.
