Log of the crash

Recently, I've been noticing that X crashes on start-up when I have a monitor configured on VGA_1  but it is not connected. If I comment out the configuration line or connect the monitor, X starts just fine.

I'm not sure when this first started happening, as I have not been using a multi-monitor setup recently. Sorry I can't be more help in that regard.

I'm using git master (commit f1c6cc86), X Server (1.5.0 RC 6), on Gentoo Linux

Comment 3 Egbert Eich 2008-09-17 04:13:14 UTC
This is a bug in the XRandR 1.2 code in the Xserver.
I cannot reproduce this bug any more with the current GIT head of the xorg/xserver package. Therefore I assume it's fixed.
