Comment 1 Larry Troan 2003-02-06 23:48:48 UTC
Mike, status?

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-06 23:59:32 UTC
There is no useful information pertaining to video or XFree86 in the
information above.  Please supply information that is relevant to
troubleshooting video related problems to the report.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-07 00:03:27 UTC
I will need to know what video card specifically is in the system (on all
X related bug reports, not just this one), and all X related bug reports
must have the XFree86 log file and config file attached to them as text/plain 

Also note that in the above comment it states the system is an unreleased
prototype.  That would make it also an unsupported system.  Nonetheless, if
I'm supplied with the proper level of detailed information required to
investigate/comment, I'll have a look.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2003-04-01 23:11:32 UTC
Not enough information in bug report to proceed. Closing bug WONTFIX.

Comment 5 Larry Troan 2003-04-11 02:31:18 UTC
Leaving closed and reducing severity to reflect issue tracker. Will consider
reopening if HP provides requested information (requested 2/06).
