Description m.oliver 2008-07-07 18:13:52 UTC
Description of problem:
Dual head on i915 graphics (Dell XPS M1330 notebook, driver "intel") works
during bootup and on login screen, but stops working after logging in.  Calling
system-config-display from terminal results in traceback (see below).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Note sure which package the intel driver is in, but working on a fully uptodate
F9 as of today

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start system-config-display
2. Click "Dual-Head"
3. Check box "Use Dual Head", click "OK"
Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/", line 152, in ok
    second_monitor = self.xconfig.monitor[1]
IndexError: index out-of-bounds

Expected results:
Working Dual-head configuration

Additional info:
Configuration kind of works (with some resolution setting problems, but well
enough that external projector can be used) on Ubuntu 7.10 which came installed
on the laptop.

Same (or similar) problem here with an ATI dual DVI  RV350 AP [Radeon 9600] using the free radeon driver. Calling system-config-display from terminal results in a traceback: 

  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/", line 201, in ok
    if card.getDescription() == self.secondVideocardOptionMenu.get_menu().get_active().get_data("NAME"):
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get_data'

It occurs when clicking on OK on the two screen tab after having modified the destop setting to "desktop using both displays" (re-translating the german message)

Same is true with the other option "individuell desktops".

system-config-display is

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 01:58:27 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 17:45:12 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
