Description Michael Schwendt 2006-07-17 23:30:00 UTC
Yum update of FC5 to FC Devel leaves me with a non-working X server
and a Python traceback when running s-c-d in virtual console. Full
traceback in separate attachment.

$ rpm -q system-config-display

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/", line 377, in ?
    dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig,
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/", line 467, in __init__
    self.size_preview =
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/", line 58, in __init__
    gtk.gdk.screen_width(), gtk.gdk.screen_height())
RuntimeError: could not create GdkPixbuf object

I've managed to run it with option "--noui" to create a fresh xorg.conf
which results in a lousy VESA 800x600 video mode, because somewhere
there's something else broken and refuses my 1280x1024 mode.

DOes this work better with 1.0.41 in rawhide?

Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2006-08-11 18:02:16 UTC
Yes.  Now I just need a working mga driver. :(

Startup crash is back:

$ rpm -q system-config-display

Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2007-03-26 20:35:41 UTC
I am unable to reproduce this with 1.0.49.  Can you update and verify?

Comment 7 Michael Schwendt 2007-03-26 22:54:35 UTC
1.0.48-1.fc7 is the latest that is available here.

Unable to reproduce.
Cannot reproduce with up-to-date FC6 anymore either.

It's many months since the original report, so I cannot examine
it any further anymore.
