#315 closed System Defect (fixed)

Display Wizard doesn't work

Reported by: lme Owned by:
Priority: blocker Milestone:
Component: XOrg Configurator Version: 8.1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


When the Display Wizard is started on my notebook, the screen is garbaged. The graphics chipset is drm0: <Mobile Intel\M-B\M-. GM45 Express Chipset> on vgapci0

Solution: Change to the console, delete /PCBSD/xorg-gui/.xstartupsuccess and kill X. When the Display Wizard gets restarted, it works correctly.
The strange thing about it is, that X initially works when the normal system installer is started.

  • Version changed from 8.1-RC1 to 8.1

This problem still exists in PC-BSD 8.1.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Just committed a work-around for this bug. The display wizard now respects the VESA mode option you can set at the boot-loader prompt. If this is enabled, it'll default back to the failsafe vesa xorg.conf, and let you get past this error.
