Description John Summerfield 2004-11-25 09:55:54 UTC

Description of problem:
This is a Pentium III system built with an Intel motherboard, Product
Name: D815EEA.

It has onboard graphics: 0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel
Corp. 82815 CGC [Chipset Graphics Controller] (rev 02)

I also have an HP evectra built on an i810 chipset, again with onboard

Both have display problems in X (which means Anaconda). I've not yet
got and RH linux onto this system, its running Mandrake 10CE and
before that SuSE 9.1. Both of those also have display problems though
not as serious as the pictures at http://redhat.cds.merseine.nu/

On the evectra, rhgb also has problems.

If you look at the second image you will see the display is offset to
one side. That occurrs with all the above distros on this system, and
on the evecra in X and rhgb.

I'm sure that Anaconda isn't the best product to report against; I
suggest you assign sometone to take care of it, maybe open a new bug
and let me know.

The display problems depend on chosen resultion, and at some the
display is (somewhat) usable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot Nahant with VGA=791
2.Process to graphics display
3.Admire http://redhat.cds.merseine.nu/imgp0003.jpg

Actual Results:  Grossly distored screen with a vulgar vertical pattern.

Expected Results:  Readable, usable display

I've add to that website kernel messages _from booting Mandrake_ plus
PCI and DMI info for the Intel dt system.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-11-25 21:40:26 UTC
Problem is widely reported in Fedora Core 3, which shares the
same Xorg release.  Fixed internally in CVS.  Will be in a future
FC3 update, and will be in the next official RHEL4 build.

Closing as duplicate of the master FC3 bug.  If the problem occurs
with build -19.EL or higher, please reopen.
