kudzu on 64bit RHEL4.5 is unable to detect monitor EDID
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:07:38 EDT
Description of problem:
After install RHEL4.5 64bit, we found no monitor Information is detected by
kudzu, however monitor information can be detected by kudzu on RHEL4.5 32BIT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kudzu for RHEL4.5 64BIT
Steps to Reproduce:
1.connect a CRT monitor with EDID information to system
3.run ddcprobe(a command which will call kudzu to detect monitor information),
no monitor information is detected
no monitor information was detected
kudzu should get the monitor EDID information
we tested RHEL4.5 32BIT on the same system, in this case, monitor EDID is read
out by kudzu.
vm86 doesn't work on x86_64.
you mean this is a known issue that won't be fixed?
Correct. There was an effort at one point to work on using a x86 emulator for
this code, but it never reached the required stability level to use in RHEL.
