Description of problem:
on my dell inspiron 8100, running "Xconfigurator --kickstart" fails
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run "Xconfigurator --kickstart"
Actual Results: error messages:
Server doesn't exist, can't continue.
tried to use ../../usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_VGA16
Expected Results: should have generated an XF86Config file
i've tried to add various Xconfigurator options, such as
--server, --driver, --preferxf4 and so on, but i still get the
same error every single time.
What video card is this? Please attach details.
Same problem here with my workstations (oh about 250 or so) with Matrox G400 &
G450. I've added this to my post-kickstart scripts to un-break it.
mv /tmp/xf86config-* /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
perl -pi -e "
s/Depth 8/Depth 24/;
Closing bug due to lack of information from original report and no followup.
At this point, Xconfigurator is basically obsolete and only will receive
security updates if required. Red Hat Linux 8.0 contains a completely
rewritten XFree86 config tool infrastructure, and users are recommended
to upgrade to the latest release if having problems with older versions
while using Xconfigurator.
