Description of problem:
XFree86 -scanpci no longer seems functional, from what I can tell must
ne that way for a while.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Nothing returned
Expected Results: Video card pci id's returned
I suspect this is ignornace on my part, but the man page and googling
have gotten me nowhere.
You can use the "scanpci" utility included with X, or you can use
"lspci" and look for Class 0300 devices. Both provide equivalent
information as a very useable workaround and are more common.
Assuming this bug is present, it is something that should be
investigated and fixed by the upstream X project(s) respectively
as it is a minor issue with 2 reasonable and preferred workarounds.
We are no longer following XFree86 development, as we've switched
to X.Org X11 starting with Fedora Core 2. You can file a bug report
in XFree86 bugzilla at http://bugs.xfree86.org if you like, and
the XFree86 developers will investigate the issue. If you find the
problem also occurs in Fedora Core 2, with xorg-x11, you can file
a bug report in X.Org bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org
in the "xorg" component, and if you paste the X.Org bug report
URL here, we will track the issue in X.Org bugzilla for future
Setting status to "WONTFIX".
Xorg -scanpci works great in FC2, thanks a bunch.
Ok, thanks for the update. Changing status to "CURRENTRELEASE" of
Fedora Core 2.
