  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 294, in <module>
    vc = rhpxl.videocard.VideoCardInfo()

Additional info:
I've set priority to "high" because this is one of my (personal) blockers for 
releasing the fedora kde4 livecd.

What's the architecture of the computer in question? Is it really i386 or ppc64?
Comment 2 Sebastian Vahl 2007-12-12 12:56:19 EST
It's i386. (That's why I set the hardware tab to it).
