Description of problem:
on a fresh rawhide install into a VMWare VM I get tracebacks when trying to run system-config-display from a terminal.  I also got the same failure and traceback during firstboot.  Output from the terminal:

[root@rawhide ~]# system-config-display
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 377, in ?
    dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig,
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 552, in
    if card.driver[0:5] == "Card:":
TypeError: unsubscriptable object
[root@rawhide ~]#

I broke it, I might as well fix it. Investigating.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-21 17:37:02 UTC
Fixed in 1.0.32-1.

Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2005-09-24 19:18:11 UTC
Re-opening... the error message has changed..but it still looks related.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 376, in ?
    import xConfigDialog
ImportError: No module named xConfigDialog

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-26 16:25:35 UTC
How are you running it in this case? From a text terminal, a X terminal, or from
the menu?

Comment 5 Peter Jones 2005-09-27 14:15:27 UTC
This should be fixed in rawhide with python-2.4.1-13
