Description Jason Montleon 2003-02-05 13:47:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030120

Description of problem:
I tried to run the Display under system settings as a user.  I was prompted for
root password and supplied it.  After that nothing happened.  I tried again and
was not even prompted for the root password.  Rebooted and still was not even
prompted for the root password before the program exited out.  I tried running
it from the command line and received the message:

[root@2kcomm root]# redhat-config-xfree86
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/", line 357
    current_card_driver = current_card.getCardData()["DRIVER"]
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

(the carat was under the r in driver on the command line, other than that the
layout is fairly identical, as it is a cut and paste)

It appears that the line above that (line 356), 
print _("Trying with card:", current_card.getCardData()["NAME"])

was missing the end parenthisis, which I added, and was then able to run
redhat-config-xfree86 with expected results.

I never manually manipulated the file previous to this attempt to run the program.
