Description Hans de Goede 2000-07-22 05:50:28 EDT
On my laptop (chaplet 5023 / p133) Xconfigurator segfaults with no usefull
mesages at all.

Kudzu (since the 6.9 beta's, 6.2 is fine) also hates this machine also see:
bug 14455 and bug 14456.

Xconfigurato crashing also is very likely the cause of Xsetup being skipped
on this machine during a textinstall see bug 14557
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-22 17:24:13 EDT
I'll add a noprobe option for buggy hardware.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-23 18:47:26 EDT
Added... specify "--noddcprobe" for buggy hardware.
Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2000-07-24 17:59:29 EDT
Just tried the new Xconfigurator, the -noddcprobe fixes it.

Although it would be nice if it would give some other error then segfaulting.
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-02 10:43:03 EDT
Does the one from http://people.redhat.com/teg/xc/ work any better?
Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2000-08-19 07:20:46 EDT
Yes it just turns off the backlight like kudzu does instead of crashing ;|
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-19 07:43:06 EDT
Since that seem to be the correct DDC operation on your laptop, this means it
works then :/ (it uses kudzu for DDC probing)
