system-config-display not installed by default
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:16:23 EDT
Description of problem:
system-config-display is not installed by default network installation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10 preview with default package options using network boot CD.
This is a comps issue, re-assigning.
Removed at the request of the maintainer - xrandr and something like gnome-display-properties (or the equivalent KDE tool) is the proper answer.
It is not an answer, as it does not create xorg.conf and does not set system-wide display properties. It is needed, for example, for vmware tools.
Why do vmware tools need it? They should work properly with xrandr and input hotplug.
Their configuration tool fails to create good config file from the scratch, but it can create it from existing xorg.conf.
Also, having system-wide configuration tool looks better for me.

Well, then you probably should be asking them to fix their tool; that's not something we can fix in Fedora.
