Description Matti Airas 2001-02-07 04:05:49 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010126

When using SMI Lynx EM (as in HP OmniBook XE2 laptops), Xconfigurator
tries to install old 3.3.6 drivers, which are horribly buggy and in
general broken, even though 4.0.2 drivers do exist.

Note that this was not tried on a full fisher install, I just threw the
rpms in a RH7.0 installation.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select SMI Lynx EM+ from the list and proceed with the install. :-)

Actual Results:  X failed to start since I had removed the XFree_SVGA 3.3.6

Expected Results:  X should have started with a properly configured 4.0.2

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-02-08 18:47:46 EST
fixed in Xconfigurator-4.6.8-1 and later.
