Description Frederic 2005-01-06 10:32:49 EST
Description of problem: Well, indeed I have got an old compaq Deskpro -pentium 3- with an Compaq S710 screen and I use it for test purpose. Thus, I have tryed to install the new update -3- of the Red Hat Advanced Server on it. Ok, I know that it is not the best platform to install this OS. But it only for test you know. Anyway, I have a little problem with the graphical wizard during the installation. Indeed, it does not work properly. I have multiple line of different colors. Nothing readable. Of course, in order to bypass this problem I use the text installation however it is less user friendly. Agree with me? Well, I thinks it is due to a bad diplay setting set by anaconda. By the way, it works fine with the first release of RHAS 3 and the video card is ATI but I am not sure; the vga compatible controller is Intel Corp. 82815 CGC. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Red Hat Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 3) How reproducible: Well, Have the same device provided in the Compaq Desktop EN and a Compaq S710 screen and do a basic grphical installation. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have the same device provided in the Compaq Desktop EN 2. Insert the RHAS V.3 Update 3 3. Begin the Installation and wait after the first graphical screen. 4. You should see what is the problem. Actual results: The screen is a kind of multicolor line. Expected results: The graphical installation should appear. Additional info: Well, I you have any question... You know my email address. Best Regards Fred

Does it work better if you boot with 'linux nofb'?

If you boot the installer into text mode and hit ctrl-alt f2 can you paste the output of: python -c "import kudzu; print kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_UNSPEC,kudzu.BUS_DDC,kudzu.PROBE_ALL)" Do you have a monitor INF file with the monitor?
