Description Jiri Cerny 2007-10-27 19:25:18 UTC
Description of problem:
After the change of the configuration system-config-displays says:
"Configuration was written to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, original configuration saved
as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup." But there is no backup file created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
start s-c-d, change some settings, exit.

Who thinks no GUI is a low severity bug? A utility that renders the GUI useless,
fails to save a backup and generally screws things up needs an instant fix -
deletion from the distro springs to mind. Fedora 8 == no dual head. Who tested this?
