Summary0007205: Monitor Resolution not identifying
Descriptioni am using "Linux Kali 5.4.83-Re4son-v8l+ 0000001 SMP PREEMPT Sat May 15 07:55:31 UTC 2021 aarch64 GNU/Linux" in my Raspberry pi 4 model B.My monitor is LG Flatron E1942.I am using a HDMI to VGA converter,the desktop resolution is 1366x768.Until the latest update my monitor resolution was automatically configured and was set to 13766x768 but after the latest update its not working anymore,So i had to edit some configuration file to get it at least work with my monitor.I also tried using xrandr but it is also showing error and not working.Please add the option back to get support for my monitor because i don't have any other monitors
I strongly believe in the Kali developers team.Kindly fix this issue as soon as possible
Additional InformationThe only maximum resolution I can get is only 1360x768 but my real resolution is 1366x768

There isn't much we can do here - I would suggest opening a bug on the RaspberryPi linux repository at - we don't touch any of the monitor stuff when we patch the kernel, so this is probably a bug with the 5.4 kernel itself. We will keep an eye on the 5.4 branch and see what changes are coming.
