xorg.conf: Disable in Section "Module"
Last modified: 2008-02-21 12:49:28 EST
Description of problem:
man 5 xorg.conf documents:
Trying to use
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):
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)
Breakdown, x-server doesn't start.
Either I am mis-interpreting the man page, there is a mis-match between docs and
implementation, or ... there is a bug somewhere.
I could have sworn 'Disable "..."' once had worked, but ... I could be wrong ;)
Doesn't have the section I am citing above, anymore.
So, ... wild guess: Implementation vs. docs mismatch in F8 :/
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 126.96.36.199-41.fc8.
xorg-x11-server-188.8.131.52-41.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
Fixed in updates.
