Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206490
s-c-d won't create dual head when desktop effects turned on
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
With desktop effects enabled, trying to setup dual-head with two radeon 9200
cards fails with traceback and error: UnboundLocalError: local variable 'model'
referenced before assignment
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q system-config-display
Only when desktop effects active
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable desktop effects
2. as root in a terminal: system-config-display
3. select dual head, configure and click ok
clicking ok doesn't do anything except show traceback in terminal display
working dual head
Turning off desktop effects allows me to create a working dual head (after
manual modification of xorg.conf, see bz 203250). HOWEVER, cannot activate
desktop effects when in dual head mode, system freezes, no keyboard, no mouse,
have to reset/restart--maybe this should be a separate BZ?
Here is traceback:
[root@P4C800Deluxe ~]# system-config-display
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 125, in ok
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/monitorDialog.py", line 213, in
return model, vsync, hsync
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'model' referenced before assignment
System is ASUS P4C800 Deluxe with AGP radeon 9200, PCI radeon 9200SE, Viewsonic
P225f on the 9200 and Princeton LCD on 9200SE.
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
I cannot test/verify this as I no longer have the dual head setup and will not
for the foreseeable future. Sorry.
