[CentOS] system-display-config doesn't run right

This might be a gnome problem, but....

 

I've noticed that, on occasion (frequently), when I try to look at or
modify my display configuration, the Applications->System
Settings->Display doesn't come up.  It asks for the root password, which
I give it, and then nothing.

 

I ran system-config-display form the command line, but it dies thus:

 

[root at mhullrichter mhr]# system-config-display

* no cardMem, assuming 8192

* no cardMem, assuming 8192

Trying with card: VESA driver (generic)

* no cardMem, assuming 8192

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 380, in ?

    dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig,
rhpl.videocard.VideoCardInfo())

  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 566, in
__init__

 
self.xml.get_widget("secondMonitorLabel").set_text(monitor_list[1].model
name)

TypeError: GtkLabel.set_text() argument 1 must be string, not None

 

I seem to be missing an argument from the call, but I'm not sure what
goes there, and even so, when I run it from the menu, shouldn't it have
the right data and run?

 

Thanks.
