Comment 1 Glen Foster 2000-07-18 20:28:43 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Beta-5

Comment 2 Becky Miller 2000-07-18 21:48:15 UTC
I asked our lab techs to recreate this test case and provide additional 
information if possible.

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2000-07-21 20:26:26 UTC
Does this defect still exist with (on) Winston beta-4?

Comment 4 Becky Miller 2000-07-24 20:05:49 UTC
The summary is wrong.  It should read Xconfigurator doesn't probe for video on 
6300.  In the window identifying the video card the XFREE4.0 driver: No match 
appears and then user is prompted for information.  This still happens in Beta 

Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2000-07-24 20:43:22 UTC
No no - this just means that there wasn't a XFree86-4.0 driver lised in the
Cards database.  X should still work fine with the 3.3.6 driver, it should say:

PCI Entry      : (whatever)
X Server       : XF86_Mach64
XFree4 driver  : no match

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2000-07-27 18:46:25 UTC
Please test with beta 5.

Comment 7 Becky Miller 2000-07-27 20:48:17 UTC
We now understand that this is working as designed.  Thanks.
