Running without an xorg.conf on the XO leads to errors starting X due to inability to find modes. Log attached
rpm -q xorg-x11-server xorg-x11-drv-geode
Did you test the latest builds here?
Would have been what was in rawhide before new bits started flowing yesterday. I'll be doing some more builds and will try newer now that rawhide's been pushed
OK, waiting on more information.
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? Thank you
Still the case with today's rawhide with is 2.10.1 of the geode driver.
But based on the discussion I had with Jordan on IRC, this isn't entirely unexpected and he was going to take a look.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I believe this is now fixed, just need some confirmation. I will test it on my XO as well as my FitPC to confirm.
Actually its being used like this for the SugarLabs SOAS builds so it should be good :)
It seems that still to this day, we have a hack in the spins-kickstarts for this bug:
# this is a bad hack to work around #460581 for the geode
# purely to help move testing along for now
if [ \`grep -c Geode /proc/cpuinfo\` -ne 0 ]; then
cat > /etc/X11/xorg.conf <<FOE
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Can I remove this from the f14 ones?

Yes! I meant to remove that in F-13 but ran out of time.
