Description Steven W. Orr 2003-10-12 16:47:23 UTC
Description of problem: redhat-config-xfree86 hangs from console.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):0.7.3-2

How reproducible:Run a console window as root, just run redhat-config-xfree86.
It will hang inside ddcproc. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Matrox G450 with 32 Meg of ram. Old monitor was a Mag Innovision. New one is
a NEC Multisync E1100+. Reconfig was needed because the sync rates were different
Actual results:

Expected results:
Expected new XF86Config file.

Additional info:
Tried with all possible options on the commandline. Tried with and without the
old XF86Config file. ddcproc just hangs.

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-10-14 16:36:34 UTC
As root, just try running ddcprobe directly by running '/usr/sbin/ddcprobe'.  If
running ddcprobe directly hangs, then the bug component should be changed to
'rhlp' since that's the package that ddcprobe comes from.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2004-03-04 20:03:33 UTC
Closing due to lack of information.
