Description Peter Fales 2001-09-12 12:21:35 EDT
Description of Problem:

We had a system where Xconfigurator  --kickstart fails to generate a valid
XF86Config-4 file.  It works when run manually, but not not in kickstart
One key difference is that in manual mode, it inserts a custom 1400x1050
and sets the display size to 1400x1050.  In kickstart mode, it limits
itself to 1024x768

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Xconfigurator --kickstart --monitor 'Generic Laptop Display Panel

Actual Results:

Generated XF86Config file has a display size of 1024x768, which doesn't
work properly

Expected Results:

Should have set display to 1400x1050

Additional Information:

It works properly when you run Xconfigurator without --kickstart, and
select "Generic Laptop
Display Panel 1400x1050" as the monitor.  I did some gdb testing, and I
think it may be that
the code that finds the special 1400x1050 mode is in findCombo() which is
never called when
--kickstart is used.

Xconfigurator is now considered obsolete.  It is replaced in rawhide
by redhat-config-xfree86.
