Xorg setup problems
Before i try and uninstall the ATI drivers off of my computer, i would like to run the automatic Xconfiguration. So i used setup and choose Xwindows, but i get this error:
[root@localhost ~]# setup Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 381, in ? dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, rhpl.videocard.VideoCardInfo()) File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 571, in __init__ self.xml.get_widget("secondMonitorLabel").set_text(monitor_list.modelname) TypeError: GtkLabel.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None [root@localhost ~]#
Does anyone now how, why, or what this error is? Do you think that it is due to the ATI drivers, and so should i uninstall those first before trying to reconfigure X? Thanks.

As you're running FC4, you should be safe to uninstall before you try to change your X configuration.
Before you start, flip to runlevel 3 with:

Unfortunately, my system hangs if i do init 3
I think that all these probems are due to the fact that i installed an ATI driver, and then restored my xorg.conf file.
Any other suggestions? Thanks.

To boot up in runlevel 3, there are two methods:
- Edit /etc/inittab to change the default runlevel (near the top of the file - quite easy to find, looke like 'id:5:initdefault:') from 5 to 3. This change is permanent until you change it back.
- Add a '3' to the end of the kernel parameters at boot up time. This only applies to the current session.
Once you're in runlevel 3, you can run:

Thanks so much Roxoff!
It worked perfectly (I edited the inittab file), and i can use system-config-display now. Looks like the damage done by the ATI driver has been finally fixed with your help. Thanks again.
