Description Uwe Kubosch 2007-04-13 03:29:35 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a Dell Precision M90 laptop with nvidia Quadro FX 2500M graphics chips. 
nvidia-x11-drv graphics drivers are installed.

Trying to save a dual head setup for this driver results in a python traceback.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0.51-1.fc7

How reproducible:
Happens every time.  The same error is present in FC6.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect 2 LCD monitors 1600x1200
2. Select 1600x1200 resolution for first monitor.
3. Select nvidia driver in Hardware -> Video Card
4. Check "Dual Head" checkbox
5. Select Generic LCD monitor 1600x1200 for second monitor
6. Click "OK" button

  
Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 137, in ok
    lower_vrefresh, upper_vrefresh =
string.split(str(self.second_monitor_vrefresh), "-")
ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack


Expected results:
No traceback, and nnew /etc/X11/xorg.conf file saved with dual head setup.

Additional info:
Thank you for your good work!

Created attachment 154666 [details]
patch for /usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py

This patch fixes dual-head configuration for LCDs - sometimes the sync ranges
are a single number ('60.0') instead of a range ('60.0-60.0'), so you need to
handle them accordingly.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 20:03:59 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
