Description of problem:
redhat-config-xfree86 seems to work everywhere very fine except when i click on
the 'ok' button.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. redhat-config-xfree86

Actual Results:  [root@gruyere /etc/apt]#  redhat-config-xfree86
(xconf.py:20614): Gdk-WARNING **: DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID contains invalid UTF-8
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/xConfigDialog.py", line 250, in ok
IndexError: index out-of-bounds

Additional info:

I tried with --reconfig and it didnt worked either.
BTW this message : 
(xconf.py:20614): Gdk-WARNING **: DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID contains invalid UTF-8
is unrelated with the bug, and it doesnt appear if i set locale to fr_FR.UTF-8.

I got a Radeon 7200 video card :

deviceId: 5144
subVendorId: 1002
subDeviceId: 0038
pciType: 1
pcibus:  1

pcifn:  0

The monitor is currently configured as generic 1600x1200 monitor.
(I got a mitsubishi diamond 230sb which is not in the list).

I get this too, Brent.  Here's a really lame patch that bandaids over the problem.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-10-23 14:47:44 EDT
That patch doesn't really fix the problem.  I've committed a fix, which should
appear in redhat-config-xfree86-0.9.14-1.

When will redhat-config-xfree86-0.9.14-1 be available? I've just checked
up2date/rawhide, and nothing (14:53 EST). The most recent version I have is
redhat-config-xfree86-0.9.13-1, and the problem still persists: no action
from the Display Manager.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2003-10-24 15:28:58 EDT
Rawhide seems to be down at the moment.  Try downloading from
Comment 7 Elton Woo 2003-10-24 16:07:41 EDT
Got it and installed it (~xfree86-0.9.15-1.noarch). It works, but no longer "on
the fly" you have to logout, and it no longer asks you if you want to test the 
selected configuration, or accept it... :-(
Comment 8 Brent Fox 2003-10-29 16:57:14 EST
Elton, redhat-config-xfree86 never worked "on the fly".  It can't.  It has to
modify the /etc/X11/XF86Config file, which is only processed by XFree86 at
runtime.  Any changes to the file require XFree86 to be restarted to take effect.
