As I just found out, Linux 2.4.1-pre1 breaks several things on
my system that worked perfectly in 2.4.0-final and the entire
XFree 4.2.0 now fails to detect monitor timings and therefore
removes all modelines and bails out. The relevant diff of the
X logfile follows. Note the "nan" bits.
< (II) NV(0): Gamma: 1.80
--- > (II) NV(0): Gamma: nan 385,386c385,386 < (II) NV(0): redX: 0.625 redY: 0.340 greenX: 0.285 greenY: 0.600 < (II) NV(0): blueX: 0.150 blueY: 0.065 whiteX: 0.283 whiteY: 0.298--- > (II) NV(0): redX: 0.625 redY: nan greenX: 0.285 greenY: 0.600 > (II) NV(0): blueX: 0.150 blueY: nan whiteX: 0.283 whiteY: 0.298 424c424 < (II) NV(0): Clock range: 12.00 to 350.00 MHz--- > (II) NV(0): Clock range: nan to nan MHz
Moreover, with 2.4.1-pre1 the "w" command behaves in mysterious ways:
Normal output is something like:
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT root tty1 - 2:23pm 4:41 0.03s 0.03s -bash
With 2.4.1-pre1 things look like:
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT root tty1 - 2:21pm ? 0.2147483648s 0.01s w
I'm not sure I need it so precise :-)
Since the 2.4.1-pre1 patch is rather small, it shouldn't be too hard to hunt down the part that causes these oddities.
