Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121816
XF86config is still being created
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Description of problem:
in the new xorg packages the X config got moved to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
however /etc/X11/XF86config is still being created on install.
i also had to hand edit my xorg.conf file to get anything other than
640x480 to work. i'm using a nvidia tnt2. had to uncomment horizsync
and vertrefresh and then comment displaysize in the "monitor" section.
i noticed that everytime i change the display settings, this
commented section is always placed in the "monitor" section:
### Uncomment if you don't want to default to DDC:
# HorizSync 30.0 - 85.0
# VertRefresh 48.0 - 120.0
i also went up to "serverlayout" section and removed what appeared to
be random 0's laying about.
According to the latest builds as of May 4:
* Fri Apr 30 2004 Brent Fox <firstname.lastname@example.org> 1.0.14-1
- do not write out extra XF86Config file during firstboot (bug #121729)
Of course I haven't tested this, but since this bug got moved to
system-config-display, it already been fixed. So I'm closing it
saying current release? If I'm wrong someone can reopen it.
