XFree86.0.log filling will GetModeLines

Post by Mark » Thu, 26 Jun 2003 12:47:58



I'm using Red Hat 9.0 and I've been noticing that the
XFree86.0.log file is filling with:

GetModeLine - hdsp: 1024 hbeg: 1072 hend: 1168 httl: 1376
              vdsp: 768 vbeg: 769 vend: 772 vttl: 808 flags: 5
GetModeLine - scrn: 0 clock: 94500
GetModeLine - hdsp: 1024 hbeg: 1072 hend: 1168 httl: 1376
              vdsp: 768 vbeg: 769 vend: 772 vttl: 808 flags: 5
GetModeLine - scrn: 0 clock: 94500
GetModeLine - hdsp: 1024 hbeg: 1072 hend: 1168 httl: 1376
              vdsp: 768 vbeg: 769 vend: 772 vttl: 808 flags: 5
GetModeLine - scrn: 0 clock: 94500
GetModeLine - hdsp: 1024 hbeg: 1072 hend: 1168 httl: 1376
              vdsp: 768 vbeg: 769 vend: 772 vttl: 808 flags: 5
GetModeLine - scrn: 0 clock: 94500

over and over.  I think it happens when the screensaver is running, like if
I do a Lock screen from the Main menu.  Any ideas how to stop that?
I think RH 9.0 uses XScreenSaver version 4.07 from what I see on the
login screen to unlock it.

I'm always starting X manually via startx, I don't have inittab setup to
start it automatically (I like it that way).  So that seems to match up
with your experience.

1. XFree86 4.2.0 GetModeLine

XFree86.0.log is currently 1.5MB consisting of the subject entry plus
the parameters, e.g.

GetModeLine - scrn: 0 clock: 157500
GetModeLine - hdsp: 1280 hbeg: 1344 hend: 1504 httl: 1728
              vdsp: 1024 vbeg: 1025 vend: 1028 vttl: 1072 flags: 5

I suspect this is a --verbosity thing for logging but I can't find a
way to switch it off.  Man XFree86 tells me the default is 3 but not
where the conf file is for changing it.

Just mildly annoying.
