Description Alessandro Polverini 2004-03-31 23:29:42 UTC
Description of problem:
Anaconda can't enter graphic mode.
system-config-display does not work

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The one shipped with FC2-test2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install in text mode
2. Reboot
3. Run system-config-display --reconfig
Actual results:
"redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig" does nothing with this error:
Traceback (most recent call last):

NameError: name 'hardware_state' is not defined

Expected results:
Some kind of working xfree86, possibly using both my two Flat panels
(one DVI, one normal).

rpm -q xorg-x11

That makes it easier when reading this bug report to know what version
you were using, without us having to go and look up the version that
was included in FC2t2 each time.  ;o)

Comment 2 Alessandro Polverini 2004-04-01 09:01:16 UTC
Yes, I know how to use rpm, the only problem is that the machine from
which I do the bug reporting, is the same, so when I installed
FC2-test2  I forgot to do the command, and now, on FC1, I can't do it
(and I don't reboot any more, cause I'm working on it).

Anyway, looking at the FC2-test2 cd, I see this file:

Same problem with my nvidia 5900xt.  Does this help?

Comment 5 Thomas J. Baker 2004-04-06 15:20:16 UTC
I also have this problem on my Dell Inspiron 7500 laptop with an ATI
Rage Mobility card. Running redhat-config-display --reconfig does not
work with the same 'hardware_state' error. More details of my hardware
are in the following bug about X starting but not displaying anything:


Comment 6 Alessandro Polverini 2004-04-28 11:52:02 UTC
In FC2 Test3 if I run  system-config-display I got the following:

* no cardMem, assuming 8192
* ddcprobe returned bogus values:
ID:   None
Name: None
HorizSync: None
VertSync:  None
* no cardMem, assuming 8192
Trying with card: VESA driver (generic)
* no cardMem, assuming 8192

And when the window opens the only resolutions I can choose from are
640x480 and 800x600.

Also, if I try to enable dual head, I see no possible choices on the
"Second Video Card" option.

Actually I think the name of the option is incorrect since I have just
on video card, but with 2 video output (one DVI, the other VGA).


Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2004-08-30 21:37:24 UTC
$ grep 4151 /home/mharris/src/redhat/hwdata/pcitable
0x1002  0x4151  "Card:ATI Radeon 9600"  "ATI|RV350 AQ [Radeon 9600]"

Fixed in rawhide hwdata package.
