Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138616
Display config takes a long time to start up.

Description of problem:
Go to Applications\System Settings\Display
I'm using a fresh install of FC3 with the following hardware: IIyama
LS902UTBK, Asus Radeon 9200SE.
Does kudzu -p -b ddc run as root also seem slow? It could be we're
waiting for the probe data.
Right now both of them (kudzu and display config) take about 5
seconds, is this considered slow or normal ?
The output from kudzu seems correct expect for this:
Does this mean kudzu thinks my graphics card only has 16MiB of RAM (it
has 128) ?
OK looks as if ddc probing is slow on your h/w. Can you paste the
output of the kudzu probe into the report.
[root@max steven]# time /usr/sbin/kudzu -p -b ddc
desc: "ATI Technologies Inc. V280"
Can you attach the output of 'strace -tt /usr/sbin/kudzu -p -b ddc'?
That file is 33MBs big, are you sure you want me to upload it ?
For now, I'll upload a short version of it, since the majority of the
original file contains the same message over and over again.

Strace output (short version)
What does 'cat <whatever> | grep vm86 | wc -l' say?
[steven@max ~]$ cat strace.txt | grep vm86 | wc -l
Realistically, this code is not going to change appreciably in the near future
in a way that would speed this up. Hence, closing this report.
