Description Lamont Peterson 2005-04-08 17:03:12 UTC
Description of problem:  
If the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file has more than one SubSection "Display" and you 
use system-config-display to change the selected resolution, 
system-config-display will overwrite the first SubSection "Display" even if 
that is not the one with the right depth. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  
How reproducible:  
Create at least two SubSection "Display" sections, with different depths.   
Steps to Reproduce:  
1. Create at least two "Display" SubSections with different depths 
2. Run system-config-display, change the resolution making sure that the 
selected color depth does *not* match the color depth of the first listed 
"Display" SubSection. 
3. Look at the resulting /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. 
Actual results:  
The wrong SubSection is modified. 
Expected results:  
The correct SubSection is modified, or all are modified, but the depths are 
left alone.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

NEEDINFO timeout, resolving as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
