Description Joshua Jensen 2003-11-24 11:29:10 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030807

Description of problem:
The docs say that xconfig doesn't have to have the --card or --monitor
arguments, and if left out anaconda would use what is found when
probing. I can see that my monitor and video card are ddcprobed for, and
detected perfectly.... but anaconda complains that it didn't find any
sane defaults, and says this when "xconfig" is on a line by itself:

File "user/lib/anaconda/installclass.py", line 461, in configureX
  self.setMiscXSettigns(id, depth, resolution, runlevel = rl)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/installclass.py", line 366, in setMiscXsettings
AttributeError:  XSetup instance has no attribute 'xhwsetup'

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a valid ks.cfg file, test it to be sure it works
2. remove all args to the xconfig line in said ks.cfg
3. watch anaconda traceback =)

Expected Results:  According to the docs, xconfig needs no arguments.
 Can Red Hat please fix this... I could see this being a sensible
logic path:

1)  Use the monitor/card specified to xconfig in ks.cfg, else

2)  autodetect monitor/card and uses that to match the list of known
monitors/cards, then use the specs from the matching entries on the
list, else

3)  use the raw dccprobe specs for monitor, detect or guess card, else

4)  with no information whatsoever, (but "^xconfig$" still present in
ks.cfg), choose super-generic defaults for monitor/card.

Additional info:

I can actually use the installer from Fedora if this is fixed there...
please provide feedback regardless.

This is in the queue of things for the first update (and is fixed in
FC1 since that's a later codebase)
