Description Dagfinn Matre 2007-12-06 08:41:36 UTC
Description of problem:
system-config-display returns an error msg. Neither is it possible to change
screen resolution when selecting System->Preferences->Hardware->Screen
resolution. The dialog box appears, but the pulldown menus are empty.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run system-config-display as root
Actual results:
This error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 381, in <module>
    dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig,
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 533, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/rhpxl/xhwstate.py", line 387, in
    self.colordepth = availableDepth[-1]
IndexError: list index out of range

Expected results:
Dialog box enabling me to change screen resolution and refresh rate

Additional info:
I have installed all updates that have been suggested by the OS. I believe the
problem is related to the OS not recognizing my graphics card, ATI Mobility
Radeon X1600. I tried to run ati-driver-installer-7-11-x86.x86_64.run, found on
ATI's homepage, but that only changed the resolution to REALLY low. 
Computer: HP Compaq nc8430 (laptop), 2GHz, 2GB

Reassigning to the right component.

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-21 16:15:23 UTC
Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

1) Forget ati-driver-installer, please -- it installs binary-only ATI
proprietary driver (among other things), which we cannot support and any bugs
from systems using it are hot candidates for CLOSED/CANTIFX. Please, don't use
it. Use only driver from xorg-x11-drv-ati package for your distribution. For
information how to clean your system of all proprietary stuff, please, see

2) Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.
