Description Gene Czarcinski 2005-10-29 13:33:35 EDT
Description of problem:

WHen I try to configure the video card (driver) by pressing the configure button
(which works fine on FC4), I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 345, in
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/videocardDialog.py", line 63, in __init__
TypeError: iter should be a GtkTreeIter

and I am unable to configure the driver.

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

I am seeing this also with Rawhide as of today 02 Jan 06, but it may have been
present for some time before.

Initially I had a GeForce 5700 PCI-e configured, but have recently upgraded to a
GeForce 6600GT.  Using system-config-date I am unable to reconfigure, in the
Hardware tab I click on "Configure" and a trace similar to the above is sent
back with no visual response to the end user and no option to reconfigure at all.

This I believe should be a blocker bug for FC5.

I agree that this should be a blocker.

Comment 4 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-01-12 13:54:59 EST
Do you still see this problem? I can't reproduce it anymore.
Comment 5 Reuben Farrelly 2006-01-14 05:14:31 EST
Yes, it's still completed busted and displays the same errors as before.

This is with system-config-display-1.0.33-1.1 (in rawhide)
Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2006-03-02 22:24:01 EST
Unable to reproduce with system-config-display-1.0.36-2.  Could someone
experiencing this bug provide more details on their setup when s-c-d is run,
including gtk and python versions and xorg.conf file?
Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2006-03-02 22:38:56 EST
Two other cases of worksforme from matthias and notting, so moving to
WORKSFORME.  Please reopen if you're still experiencing this.
Comment 8 Reuben Farrelly 2006-03-03 05:39:25 EST
Yep WORKSFORME now too so I won't be reopening it ;)
