RFE: redhat-config-xfree86 fails if xfs is stopped
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:07:27 EDT
Description of Problem:
if you try to execute redhat-config-xfree86 without a running xfs, the
program exits with the following message:
Couldn't Start X server, trying with a fresh configuration
Error, cannot start X server.
can we have the program exit with a more useful message if an xfs daemon
is not detected?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. stop xfs (if it is started)
2. try to run redhat-config-xfree86
Maybe the test config shouldn't even rely on xfs.
Still occurs on HEAD - investigating fix
