Hello all. I've been using fedora 18 with XFCE on my htpc which is connected to a projector via a DVI to HDMI cable (the video card doesn't have HDMI out and the projector doesn't take DVI).
It doesn't matter which version of gnu/linux I use, all of them have an issue with under(over?)scanning which results in the edges of my screen not being displayed. I figured out that
xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --set underscan on
Fixes it pretty nicely. Or rather, it did, until I preformed an update, and then it did nothing. I tried a debian liveCD, and that didn't even work at all, saying BadName and spitting out some other error messages. I tried installing the nvidia proprietary drivers, the action of doing so seemingly making my machine unbootable with debian. So I turned back to fedora, reinstalled it. The command worked again, until I updated, and once more the command does nothing... except now it makes X unstable and it even makes it impossible to switch to tty2+!
Should I try to downgrade my... X package? I don't even know which package to downgrade or how to go about it. How would I do it with yum?
The install cd was the standard gnome one, and I installed xfce4 as well.
lspci -k | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G80 [GeForce 8800 GTS] (rev a2)
rpm -qa | grep Xorg
rpm -qa | grep X11
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Downgrading all packages that begin with xorg didn't work.
However, booting with the earlier kernel did work. Wish I would have tried that first.
What's the best way to report this bug?
