The config file spit out by system-config-display is invalid. It does not
contain BusId or Screen in all sections as required. This is a bug in
system-config-display that has been there essentially forever and has
never been fixed for some reason...
Reassigning to s-c-d
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
