Description Linus Walleij 2002-08-22 15:52:20 EDT
Description of Problem:

Monitor vendor and model name is not written to XF86Config, even though it is

How Reproducible:

Create a XF86Config file with the anaconda installer, select a known monitor,
look in the /etc/X11/XF86Config(-4) file. The monitor section will look like this:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Monitor Model"

with only default entries in "VendorName" and "ModelName" even though anaconda
knows perfectly well the name of the vendor and model.

We'll fix this in a future release.
