Description Marc J. Miller 2003-10-02 00:33:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 Description of problem: After installing "Everything" for RHEL3 AS for AMD64 on an AMD Solo, when firstboot is run, X fails to start (screen goes black a few times). Logs and the X config file are enclosed. firstboot recognizes the problem and tries to start the X configuration utility, which also fails to start (screen goes black a few times). lspci calls video card a "Nvidia NV25 GeForce 4 Ti 4400" Running "redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig" and choosing the same settings seems fixes this problem. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot from RHEL3 AS for AMD64 CD1 2. Choose to format existing partitions rather than creating new ones 3. Install everything 4. Remove media for reboot when prompted. Actual Results: Just after it tries to run "firstboot" screen will go black about 3 times, and then user will be told that X failed to start. Expected Results: User should be prompted to create user accounts (in graphical mode) Additional info: Log files will be attached.

Not "Q3 beta"... this is RC1.
Comment 5 Marc J. Miller 2003-10-02 00:42:13 UTC
Bug in bugzilla -- I had selected multiple applicable components, as at various times the problem seemed to be in one or another: gdm, (firstboot -- not selectable), and XFree. This seems to be more of an XFree problem than anything else.
Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2003-10-02 01:24:55 UTC
Marc, can you also attach the config file that was generated at install time for your particular card, so I can compare the two? I don't have that particular video board or I'd do a test install myself. I have a feeling this is a bug in anaconda.
Comment 7 Marc J. Miller 2003-10-02 19:01:10 UTC
Created attachment 94892 [details] XF86Config (after reconfiguring; tested, works) This is the XF86Config produced from running "redhat-config-xfree86 --reconfig"
Comment 8 Brent Fox 2004-07-20 15:29:19 UTC
Marc, are you still seeing this problem? If so, what we need is the XF86Config file before you reconfigure it with redhat-config-xfree86. Then we can try to see if anaconda is creating a broken XF86Config file or not.
Comment 9 Marc J. Miller 2004-10-06 01:28:18 UTC
Seems to be okay as of Update 2. This bugzilla can be closed.
