Description Mihai Ibanescu 2003-11-24 20:02:59 EST
Did a minimal install of RHEL3 i386 AS.
Then used up2date to fetch redhat-config-xfree86
Then tried to use redhat-config-xfree86
Tool traced back, I don't have the screenshot ready, but os.execve was
I believe the tool was trying to launch the server, but there was no
server rpm.
Shouldn't redhat-config-xfree86 require XFree86 (packaging wise)?
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2004-01-16 18:11:17 EST
This is fixed in system-config-display-1.0.4-1 in Rawhide.  I added a
Requires for XFree86.
