Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 14322
xf86cfg has blank icons and crashes
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
I installed xf86cfg ( from disk 2 or power-tools ) from
XFree 4.x , but it doesn't work.
After start it tries to display some icons, but they are
all blank. If I choose "Configure Modeline" in the upper
menu, then it freezes. Everything freezes , only the mouse
pointer is alive. VT switching doesn't work, SysReq has no
effect. I had to hard reset or power-down.
It also spewed a lot of output on stderr , I attached it
as a text file.
Created attachment 1347 [details]
stderr output of xf86cfg
A lot better in pinstripe. Mostly works.
I just couldn't figure out how to add additional VESA
modes, like 1024x768. Also couldn't set the screen size
and position for any mode except 640x480x60.
Pretty much the same in RC1.
we don't support xf86cfg, only Xconfigurator.
