Description Ralf Corsepius 2008-01-24 01:05:01 EST
Description of problem:

man 5 xorg.conf documents:
       Disable "modulename"

Trying to use
Section "Module"
        Disable "glx"

in xorg.conf results into a parse error:
Parse error on line 18 of section Module in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
        "Disable" is not a valid keyword in this section

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add the "Module" section above to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
2. Try to launch x-server (I use run-level 3 and startx) 
Actual results:
Breakdown, x-server doesn't start.

Expected results:

Either I am mis-interpreting the man page, there is a mis-match between docs and
implementation, or ... there is a bug somewhere.

Additional info:
I could have sworn 'Disable "..."' once had worked, but ... I could be wrong ;)

FWIW: http://www.x.org/archive/X11R6.8.0/doc/xorg.conf.5.html
Doesn't have the section I am citing above, anymore.

So, ... wild guess: Implementation vs. docs mismatch in F8 :/

Auch, ajax?
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2008-02-11 15:03:24 EST
It's not valid syntax in xserver 1.3.0, correct.  It is valid in rawhide, and
will be valid in xserver 1.5.

The manual for the X server in F8 does mention the Disable keyword, because the
man page was updated whole from upstream without much thought.  Building a fix
for that as
