Description Peter van Egdom 2002-07-14 16:26:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020625

Description of problem:
Xconfigurator in Limbo still talks about choosing between Xfree86 versions
3.x.x and 4.x, while Xfree86 versions < 4 are not distributed anymore in Limbo.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1."Xconfigurator --help"

Actual Results:  Options:

 [--preferxf3] [--preferxf4]

are available

Expected Results:  As XFree86 is the default these options don't make sense.

The goal was to remove Xconfigurator entirely, but it just hasn't happened
yet.  redhat-config-xfree86 is the new tool.  I will consider doing this
though, as it is a good idea in case we do end up shipping it afterall. It
would be quite confusing to leave 3.3.6 support in Xconfigurator.

Thanks for the reminder.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-07-19 03:09:14 EDT
Xconfigurator is now removed from rawhide.  Everyone is encouraged to
use redhat-config-xfree86 and report bugs against it as encountered.
