Re: just blew up my 17" monitor

imho, it's not Fedora's fault or your's either. In the event that you
used the wrong sync rates, most monitors since three or so years ago
will present a screen asking you to lower or whatever your rates. Mine
flashes a red warning box, and states that it cannot handle the rates.

it might have been old hardware maybe? or perhaps magic smoke wanted out

After the installation i was prompted to reboot, the graphical boot-up was nice, i was prompted to create a regular user and all those post install stuff. Then I logged in, saw the GNOME start up. I was begining to navigate the menus when the monitor's view shrunk, then kapooooffff!!!! Then I smelled some burned plastic/stuff coming from my monitor.
