Description of problem:
In Gnome when I try to change the video card (from: "VESA driver (generic)"
to: "SD Trio3D/2X") using the 'Display Settings' (Hardware tab) I get notified
that the display settings have been updated (/etc/X11/xorg.conf). But when I
look at the file (cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf |more) the settings haven't been
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Gnome from the 'Applications' menu select 'System Settings > Display'.
2. Select the 'Hardware' tab and under 'Video Card' click the [Configure...]
3. Selected 'S3 Trio3D/2x' from the list and clicked the [OK] button.
4. Click the [OK] button to close the 'Display Settings' window.
5. Click the [OK] button on the 'Display settings changed' notification
7. Open terminal and look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
Actual Results: After selecting the S3 Trio3D/2X and clicking [OK] the text following the
'Video Card' label did not update. If I click [Configure...] button again the
S3 card is still selected.
After closing the 'Display Settings' window and looking at the xorg.conf file
the device section (eg. Section "Device") hasn't been updated.
Expected Results: 1. The 'Video Card' label should have been updated after selecting different
2. The xorg.conf file should have been updated as the notification window
I've tried logging in as root, as well as an ordinary account, but the
xorg.conf file doesn't update under either.
I'm going to reassign this bug to system-config-display.
Whilst this bug is being investigated what values ("Driver", "VendorName", and
"BoardName") can I put in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to change it to my S3
Trio3D/2X video card?
Thanks in advance.
