redhat-config-xfree86 hangs from console
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:58:19 EDT
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
Expected new XF86Config file.
Tried with all possible options on the commandline. Tried with and without the
old XF86Config file. ddcproc just hangs.
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.
Closing due to lack of information.
