Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122840
Handling of non-DDC monitors broken

Description of problem:
I have a monitor hooked up via a KVM switch which unfortunately does
not propagate DDC queries. In FC2test3, this results in a neverending
loop since the system insists on every single boot that my X is not
configured. It leaves a couple of lines in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
### Uncomment if you don't want to default to DDC:
# HorizSync 31.5 - 67.0
# VertRefresh 50.0 - 65.0
Unfortunately, even if I uncomment these manually (which makes X11
work), it still comes back on the next boot and wants me to
reconfigure X11 once again, ad nauseam.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora with a non-DDC monitor.
I recommend adding a check box to the monitor selection "don't use
DDC"; additionally, whatever it is that tries to detect if the monitor
has changed must respect that and not try over and over to ask for
Duplicate of #120950 about the DDC commented problem.. but interesting
idea for enhancement for the tool.
