Description Ralf Ertzinger 2005-07-03 09:07:04 EDT
Description of problem:

For no obvious reason s-c-n tries to load the rivafb driver on my system. The
system has a GF2 card, and the load attempt succeeds, making X instantly very
unhappy and crashing the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into X
2. Start s-c-n
Actual results:
Screen goes blank, system halts due to rivafb driver load

Expected results:
s-c-n comes up.

the kudzu lib seems to do strange things, if s-c-n probes for network and modem.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-22 16:47:59 EDT
Does this persists with kudzu-1.2.7 or later?
Comment 3 Ralf Ertzinger 2005-12-27 14:04:42 EST
Seems to be gone with current rawhide.
