From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.8 sun4u)

When I run Xconfigurator I get the error:

ERROR: There is a problem with your X configuration.

I upgraged from 7.0 to Wolverine because my sound card
(Maestro3) was not supported under 7.0

I tried to install wolverine and I get the same problem
when I test the display

This is a dell laptop CPxJ the lap top screen works fine
but the external Sun monitor will not work

below is what Xconfigurator reports for my graphic card
and the sun monitor (with the correct H & V sync rates)

PCI: ATI|Rage Mobility P/M AGI 2x
X server: None
Xfree4 driver : ati

Monitor name: Sun0567
Hor sync: 30-96 kHz
Ver sync: 48-160 Hz

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Xconfigurator or install redhat wolverine

external monitors don't work with ATI Mobility chipsets in XFree86 4.0.2 
unless you add the option "crt_screen" to the ATI Device section in 
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4.  Talking to the driver author, this is was to avoid 
panel damage in the current driver; XFree86 4.0.0 did things in an unsafe way, 
so while it worked, it was dangerous for the health of some panels.
