Description Niels Kristian Jensen 2004-05-12 19:39:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
I see the following error message upon starting X (even as root):

X server version data

(asks for the output of two commands), included below:

[root@K5FA root]# xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "dk", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "dk", "", ""
[root@K5FA root]# gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
 layouts = [dk]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = []
[root@K5FA root]#

I would like to add, that RH9 didn't fint the video resolution. But I
remember that I could use "Generic Laptop display at 1400x1050" -
which worked fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X server version data: 60700000

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to let Anaconda guess the video resolution (no luck)
2. Select Generic LCD 1400x1050 in system-config-display
3. Restart X

Actual Results:  I got a 640x480 window. The video card seems to be
correctly detected, but the monitor is not.

If I run system-config-display with --noui, I get:

ddcprobe returned bogus values

Expected Results:  I would like to use the full resolution of the TFT
display fittet on the IBM T23

Oops, I forgot the main error-message, displayed shortly after
entering root as user and pw:

Error activating XKB configuration
