Description Peter Turczak 2005-01-30 05:48:42 UTC
The current off-the shelf version of lcdproc does not support the lc-displays used in some MSI barebone servers. Searching the internet revealed one driver wich we had to adapt quide a lot to make it work again on current versions.

I have created a patch which, when applied, allows direct compilation of lcdproc with support for the msi barebone.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy an MSI Barebone Server (maybe other MSI hardware as well)
2. Install LCDproc
Actual Results:  
Wonder if there is an option for the built in display, wich, according to MSI is delivered with the 
machine but is not.

Expected Results:  
A driver should be available

I can't do it with the current information available.
