Description of problem: Using a dual head system, with a ATI Rage Pro
128 card and a NVIDIA Quadro card, the xf86config failed to properly
config the cards during the install of FC2 test1. The installer
correctly found the ATI card, but when booting, x windows would not
start, saying screen not found.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on dual head system
Actual results: xfree86 won't load

Expected results: xfree86 loads.

Comment 1 Jason James 2004-02-17 09:59:18 EST
Here is the XF86Config file text created during the install.

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice    "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name
of the 
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

	RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
#	Option	"Xleds"		"1 2 3"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#	Option	"XkbDisable"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
# or:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
#	Option	"XkbVariant"	"nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:nocaps"

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2004-02-18 04:16:24 EST
This sounds like an installer bug. pyxf86config is just a wrapper for
the xf86config library.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-22 15:00:51 EDT
Should be better with the current way we do things.
