Description Marius Andreiana 2005-11-26 09:31:07 UTC
The monitor iiyama VisionMaster PRO 411 is no longer auto-detected by firstboot
(it shows unknown monitor). It used to work in previous fedora releases.

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2005-11-30 20:02:42 UTC
What are the results if you run /usr/sbin/ddcprobe as root?

Comment 2 Marius Andreiana 2005-12-03 13:47:05 UTC
# ddcprobe

Videocard autoprobe results
Description:  Intel Corporation Intel(r)865G Graphics Controller
Memory (MB):  15
Segmentation fault

Note that X was already running when ddcprobe was started on a different tty, is
that a problem?

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-12-20 16:02:16 UTC
I don't think that should be the problem.  Let's try to narrow this down a bit
and see if this is really a kudzu problem or not.  From the console, can you run:

python -c 'import kudzu ; monitor = kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_MONITOR,
kudzu.BUS_DDC, kudzu.PROBE_ALL) ; print monitor'

and post the results?  Also, are you seeing the same autodetection problems from
anaconda, or only from firstboot?

Comment 4 Marius Andreiana 2006-01-10 22:14:05 UTC
test1's kudzu gave segmentation fault.

After kudzu update to rawhide it gives:
[Desc:           Iiyama A705MT, VisionMaster Pro 411 /i70A
Id:             IVM174a
Mem on card:    0
HSync:          30-86
VSync:          50-180
Physical width: 320 mm
Physical height: 240 mm

Will firstboot work now?
I don't remember about anaconda.

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2006-01-16 20:34:21 UTC
If kudzu was segfaulting in test1, that is a strong indication that was the
problem.  firstboot just uses rhpxl for finding this stuff out, which in turn
just uses python bindings to kudzu.  anaconda uses the same sorts of code.

Please test with FC5t2 and let me know how it works.

Comment 6 John Thacker 2006-05-05 21:10:30 UTC
No response, closing.

That it worked for the reporter in rawhide does indicate that it
likely worked in FC5t2 and in FC5.
