Description Peter Fales 2001-09-12 16:09:42 UTC
Description of Problem:

We had a system where Xconfigurator fails to probe the graphics memory
size.    The system
is an IBM thinkpad, but I suspect the same problem could show up
elsewhere.    I did some 
investigating with gdb, and the problem seems to be that the probe results
in the following line from
the server:

(--) R128(0): VideoRAM: 16384 kByte (128-bit SDR SGRAM 1:1)

Since Xconfigurator looks for the field following the rightmost ':'
character, it gets "1" instead of 16384

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Run Xconfigurator 
2.  Allow it to probe memory size

Actual Results:

Probe fails

Expected Results:

Should have reported 16MB

I think this bug has been fixed already in later releases.. will have
to doublecheck and confirm however...

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-05-30 22:13:58 UTC
Different card, but same problem as another report.  Closing as dupe, so
both issues - if still present can be investigated at the same time and
fixed together.
