Description Joshua Jensen 2001-08-21 14:28:23 EDT
Description of Problem:

The installer and Xconfigurator duplicates some Philips monitors:

Xconfigurator --listmonitors 2> /dev/null | grep -i bril
			Philips Brilliance 105(15inch/CM2200)
			Philips Brilliance 107(17inch/CM8800)
			Philips Brilliance 107(PRODUCT ID 17A58...)
			Philips Brilliance 109(PRODUCT ID 19A58...)
			Philips Brilliance 201(21inch/CM1700)
			Philips Brilliance 201CS
			Philips Brilliance AX4500(14.5 LCD MONITOR)
			Philips BRILLIANCE 105(15inch/CM2200)
			Philips BRILLIANCE 107(17inch/CM8800)
			Philips BRILLIANCE 107(PRODUCT ID 17A58...)
			Philips BRILLIANCE 109(PRODUCT ID 19A58...)
			Philips BRILLIANCE 201(21inch/CM1700)
			Philips BRILLIANCE AX4500(14.5 LCD MONITOR)

So I have a BRILLIANCE 109, which do I pick?  There seems to be no
differentiation between any two similar entries... I vote for de-dupe'ing
the list so as to not confuse people.

I'm not sure if this is an installer bug, or just and Xconfigurator bug,
but it should be fixed both places.  I originally noted this problem in the
GUI installer.

Upon further investigation, I see many overlaps:

Xconfigurator --listmonitors 2> /dev/null | sort -f | uniq -iD
Xconfigurator --listcards 2> /dev/null | sort -f | uniq -iD

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-21 16:44:05 EDT
Fixed in CVS, will appear in rawhide soon.  I fixed it before it
was flagged SHOULD fix, but it really wasn't something I would have
considered a SHOULD-FIX myself..  I just had MonitorsDB open already.
