Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 437229
X won't start, can't find valid screen configuration
Last modified: 2008-03-13 11:39:39 EDT
Description of problem:
The X server terminates with the message:
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-server-common-126.96.36.1990-0.28.20080304.fc9.i38 and forward
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X
X should run
I am attaching the Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf
Note that this is running in a QEMU-KVM virtual machine. However, there is at
least one other individual experiencing the same symptoms with an nvidia card,
which can't be in a virtual machine.
Note also that changing the video controller to vesa will allow X to run.

xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log catted together
Yep I had this same issue with VMWare Fusion for several days (maybe a week)
now. Have not tried the -4. versions yet that should fix this according to Adam
Jackson, its in koji but not yet in repo.

I did get X started up on VMware using the newer build,
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-188.8.131.521-5.20080310.fc9 (pulled from koji).
I just installed the new updates, and the problem did indeed get resolved.
Thanks for letting us know.
