monitor iiyama VisionMaster PRO 411 no longer auto-detected
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:17 EST
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.
What are the results if you run /usr/sbin/ddcprobe as root?
Videocard autoprobe results
Description: Intel Corporation Intel(r)865G Graphics Controller
Memory (MB): 15
Note that X was already running when ddcprobe was started on a different tty, is
that a problem?
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?
test1's kudzu gave segmentation fault.
After kudzu update to rawhide it gives:
[Desc: Iiyama A705MT, VisionMaster Pro 411 /i70A
Mem on card: 0
Physical width: 320 mm
Physical height: 240 mm
Will firstboot work now?
I don't remember about anaconda.
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.
No response, closing.
That it worked for the reporter in rawhide does indicate that it
likely worked in FC5t2 and in FC5.
