system-config-display crash when starting from existing xorg.conf
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have an xorg.conf that looks like:
2. start system-config-display
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 312, in <module>
hardware_state = XF86HardwareState(xconfig)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rhpxl/xhwstate.py", line 174, in __init__
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rhpxl/xhwstate.py", line 260, in init_from_xconfig
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'device'
a window should start
adding the option --reconfig bypasses the problem
I ran into this also, while trying to use kmod-nvidia, to find a solution to bug 476602. Now I have problems fixing problems!
480534 looks more popular :)

After a full yum update on Fedora 10, I am having the very same problem reported by this bug. What makes this bug so annoying is that I am running FC10 under
virtualbox. The default display size of the screen is tiny!!!
I am unable to expandit, enlarge it or re-config it.
F11 is about to be released, and there is still no fix for this bug in F10!!!
Well, I guess Fedora is permanently experimental :)
