Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-14 08:28:53 EST
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.

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.

There has to be something wrong with you installation. When I try

rpm -ql xorg-x11-drv-vmware-10.15.2-1.fc8.x86_64

I get (among other things)


Could you try to run (as root)

yum clean all
yum upgrade

and then to send us the output of the above shown rpm command, please?

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

Thanks in advance.

Xorg log file.
Comment 4 Gilboa Davara 2008-01-14 11:01:28 EST
I should clerify the vmware_drv does exists (and get detected just fine) - it's
just missing a symbol. (PictureScreenPrivateIndex)

Never the less:
$ rpm -qf /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/vmware_drv.so

P.S. I'm getting the same error from the KDE4 LiveCD.

pciaccess fix

Rebuilding the package with the attached patch (from upstream) works for me.
Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2008-01-22 13:09:22 EST
Fixed in rawhide, thanks!
