Description Anders Blomdell 2005-07-22 15:04:29 UTC
Description of problem:

When running system-config-display on a D915GAGL motherboard, kudzu fails to detect the
graphics controller (a '82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family Graphics Controller'). 
Instead of selecting the i810 driver, it tries the VESA driver, which only shows garbage on the screen.


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

kudzu-1.1.116.2-2

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'system-config-display --reconfig --noui -v'

Actual results:

Trying with card: VESA driver (generic)
Backing up /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
Writing configuration to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Removing old /etc/X11/X
Creating /etc/X11/X symlink

Expected results:

Trying with card: Intel 915
Backing up /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
Writing configuration to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Removing old /etc/X11/X
Creating /etc/X11/X symlink

Additional info:

The expected result can be achieved by removing the intelfb entries from 
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.pcimap. One way of doing this is:

  mv /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video/intelfb/intelfb.ko /tmp
  depmod -a
  system-config-display --reconfig --noui -v

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2005-07-22 16:26:54 UTC
Can you attach the output of a) lspci b) kudzu -p -b pci?

Comment 2 Anders Blomdell 2005-07-22 16:37:50 UTC
problem seems to be present only in 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp (i.e  2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp  and
2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 works as expected). From the guilty system I get:

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-07-22 17:14:47 UTC
Do you have a separate /usr?

Comment 4 Anders Blomdell 2005-07-24 20:58:07 UTC
No, everything mounted on /

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-28 21:30:38 UTC
This should be fixed in rawhide; the way X drivers are exposed to the config
tool has changed.
