Comment 3 Mike Cohler 2007-03-02 08:17:45 UTC
The xorg.conf file was the same file as created by the system when fc6 was
installed. There are no modifications since then. It is problematic trying to
run without any xorg.conf file as the system defaults to a US keyboard which
means I cannot login to the desktop since I use some characters in passwords
which are in different positions on my UK keyboard.

new xorg.conf created with system-config-display

This file is as automatically created but with the Option "XkbLayout" parameter
changed from us to gb.

Comment 5 Mike Cohler 2007-03-02 08:46:03 UTC
I have just done the following tests:
1) I removed the xorg.conf file and restarted X (using telinit 3 followed by
telinit 5) - no new xorg.conf was created! I tried rebooting and still no new
xorg.conf was created. I was unable to login on the keyboard attached to the
computer so needed to ssh in to proceed.
2) I then re-instated the original xorg.conf and restarted X allowing me to
login to the machine normally again. At this point I then ran
"system-config-display --reconfig" to regenerate a new xorg.conf called which I have attached (I had to amend the keyboard setting with a
manual edit). The new Xorg.0.log will follow.

In the next day or so I will then test the effect on the gl screensaver with
this new xorg.conf

Changing from a bin file to text - my bad previously

Comment 8 Mike Cohler 2007-03-02 19:34:26 UTC
So far today with the new xorg.conf file above the system has not yet hung X!  
I will continue to test and will report back before the end of the weekend. I
have come out of the screensaver about 6 times successfully and no crashes.

Comment 9 Mike Cohler 2007-03-04 12:55:47 UTC
I have repeatedly tested with the new xorg.conf file and there have been no
recurrences so I am closing this bug.

Comment 10 Mike Cohler 2007-03-04 13:00:26 UTC
Although it is still necessary to run system-config-display to generate an
xorg.conf that works I guess this is not an xorg bug as such which was why I
closed it. If this problem recurs when F7 is clean installed on the same system
I will bz from new but refer back to this report.
