Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 502300
xorg.conf gets reset on every boot
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:18:47 EDT
Description of problem:
My screen isn't properly detected when using a VGA cable instead of DVI (only have a VGA cable that's long enough for my setup), and manually setting the parameters in xorg.conf (like I've always done) is impossible because they're reset on every boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Very, at least on my setup
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make changes to xorg.conf
3. Discover that the changes don't stick
Changes don't stick
Changes made to xorg.conf stick, allowing me to set the correct resolution.
Using Fedora 11 preview with KDE
Are you using a live image?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I ran into a similar problem on FC 11 with gnome. Later I realized that the issue was because I had installed nvidia driver from rpmfusion. From the installation there was a script '/etc/init.d/nvidia' which changes xorg.conf on reboot. Perhaps this should not be a fedora bug?
Yeah, I've not seen any other reports of this, and I can't reproduce it.
