Description Chris Runge 1999-04-13 13:58:46 UTC
I'm using the latest 5.9.7 release (3.1?) from gribble. Xconfigurator fails to start the X server after the video card, monitor, and default resolution/color depth are selected. I have this problem with both an ATI Rage Pro (AGP) board and Matrox Millenium board. In addition, the default color depth and resolution are no longer auto-probed for the Matrox (this used to work fine in 5.2 and before).

Did 6.0 final clear this up? ------- Email Received From "Chris Runge" <firstname.lastname@example.org> 06/05/99 06:37 -------

It works for me, but maybe preston has a clue.
Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-06-21 15:14:59 UTC
There are problems probing for the amount of memory on many milleniums, so the card has been "blacklisted" for probing until a better solution can be found. This is why it doesn't determine which resolutions are available-- it doesn't know how much ram is on the card. Xconfigurator will be receiving a complete overhaul for the next release, and this will be addressed.

*** Bug 3211 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** The latest version of Xconfigurator is unable to correctly probe my Matrox Millenium II PCI (8MB) video card. The card is identified properly, but probing for possible resolutions and color depths fails. I'm forced to enter information manually. Xconfigurator worked properly with this card with RH5.2. Video performance seems to be diminished with this version of Xconfigurator.
