Description Michael Young 2001-02-01 18:55:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.6 sun4u)

In the Monitor Setup menu (text version at least) several monitors are
listed with identical names (eg. ADI Duo is listed 5 times). A quick look
at the start of the file /usr/X11R6/share/Xconfigurator/MonitorDB suggests
these are probably the same monitor with slightly different EISA ID
numbers. In
my opinion, the problem is more cosmetic than technical; it looks bad if
you have to scroll through a very long list where several entries appear to
be the same, and it could also confuse new users who happen to have one
of the monitors listed several times.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run Xconfigurator on a system where the monitor is not auto-detected

Comment 1 Preston Brown 2001-02-01 19:20:45 UTC
fixed in 4.6.6-1 and later.  Thank you for the report.

Comment 2 David Balažic 2001-02-12 17:56:47 UTC
In GUI install the Hyundai group appears twice. Once as
"Hyundai" and once as "Hyundai Electronics Industries Co., Ltd."
They have some common entries, but also have duplicates in the same "folder".
For example "Hyundai HT-7695B" appear 2 times in both groups, 4 times total !

fixed in rawhide today.  Thanks for the additional note.
