Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30827
wrong default color depth
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:00 EDT
If I set up my vide card and choose only "1024x768 @ 24 bpp", Xconfigurator
write display sections for both 24 bpp and 32 bpp plus it will add
hence X will use 32 bpp and fail since 32 bpp is not supported by my card.
BTW it does not offer 32 bpp in the list of available modes.
This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence GOLD release.
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Motion, Inc. SM910 (rev b5)
00:02.0 Class 0300: 126f:0910 (rev b5)
I can't reproduce this here; if I try to configure a Silicon Motion card
and select only 1024x768 @ 24bpp, that's all it writes out.
This is Xconfigurator that does this and not the installer, correct?
What version of Xconfigurator do you have installed?
Just tried it again. Works now.
[gerald@soliton gerald]$ rpm -q Xconfigurator
Sorry, in my previous test no XF86Config was written at all. I tested it again
and it still
happens under Xconfigurator-4.9.18-1.
Oh, ok. The 32bpp is written for XFree3, not XFree4. Out of curiousity,
does the XFree4 driver work?
Will be fixed in 4.9.19-1.
