This is issue tracker 14160, opened as sev 2.
There is no useful information pertaining to video or XFree86 in the
information above. Please supply information that is relevant to
troubleshooting video related problems to the report.
I will need to know what video card specifically is in the system (on all
X related bug reports, not just this one), and all X related bug reports
must have the XFree86 log file and config file attached to them as text/plain
Also note that in the above comment it states the system is an unreleased
prototype. That would make it also an unsupported system. Nonetheless, if
I'm supplied with the proper level of detailed information required to
investigate/comment, I'll have a look.
Not enough information in bug report to proceed. Closing bug WONTFIX.
Leaving closed and reducing severity to reflect issue tracker. Will consider
reopening if HP provides requested information (requested 2/06).
