Description Ulrich Drepper 2002-10-01 04:23:16 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20020812

Description of problem:
With my Xinerama setup (screen 0 at offset 1600, screen 1 at offset 0) the
redhat-credit program shows strange behavior.  The left screen is completely
untouched.  The right screen is blackend and the credits are shown at the very
right, but are only 50% visible.  Somewhere the program assumes that Screen 0 is
at offset 0 and screen 1 at the right (with offset 1600 in my case).  This is
not required.

Besides, it might be nices to avoid using the full width of a Xinerama display
and display the text on both/all screens.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.setup Xinerama with screen 0 to the right of screen 1.
2.start redhat-credits

Actual Results:  Output as desribed above.

Expected Results:  Either respect screen positions or display text on all screens.

well I'm curious what this is, anyhow. ;-)

Still a problem with FC test2 code.  If you don't want to fix it mark the bug as
such.  Likewise if the program gets depricated which I think makes sense for FC.

We removed the redhat-credits app.
