Steps to Reproduce:
Either your X server is misconfigured to look for rgb database in the
wrong place, or your OS installation is messed up or corrupted. In the
early stages of FC5 development there were some legitimate bugs concerning
rgb.txt being installed in the wrong place, and the X server looking in
the wrong place, etc. however all such bugs have long since been fixed.
All bug reports that have come in since have been traced back to misconfigured
X servers, or having very old packages installed, or some other transient
If you're unable to determine which is occuring for your case, do a complete
fresh reinstallation of FC5test3 and the problem should vanish.
Hope this helps.
It was a complete fresh installation of FC5test3.
But today an 'yum -y update' solved this problem.
If it occurs on a fresh OS install, then the only thing that could cause
it is misconfiguration, because I have directly verified that the system
X libraries and the X server both look for rgb.txt in the proper location
and the file is installed in the correct location. The only way it wont
be found is if the xorg.conf redefines RgbPath to another location which
clumens: Please ensure s-c-d is not writing out RgbPath to the config file.
pyxf86config has a single reference to it, but I don't believe s-c-display or
rhpxl are using it for anything. I'm not seeing it on a default Rawhide install.
