Description Bastien Nocera 2007-02-26 06:22:36 EST
xorg-x11-server-utils-7.1-4.fc6


xrandr -s doesn't do anything on my machine. gnome-display-properties has the
same problem. No errors whatsoever are reported. I'm using the radeon driver on
this machine (my work desktop).

Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2007-04-02 10:11:12 EDT
Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

It's not a crasher, or a configuration problem. Either xrandr -s works, and it
would be all fine, or some error reporting needs to trickle down to the user,
which it doesn't right now.
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2007-05-08 12:38:05 EDT
Yeah, but the radeon driver spews tons of debugging noise to the log on output
property changes, including for failures.  So, really, log plz.
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2007-05-22 18:34:01 EDT
As I don't have access to the hardware anymore (and I'm pretty certain there
weren't any related log messages in the X log file, otherwise I'd have uploaded
them...).
