This bug is filed against the xorg-x11-drv-ati component, which is the ati video driver, however the problem indicated in the report, is that the installer does not detect the monitor. The monitor detection done in the installer, is done by the ddcprobe utility, which is part of the "rhpl" package. The X server and video driver are not involved in installation time monitor detection. I'm reassinging this to the "rhpl" component, however it is possible that the method used for monitor detection may have changed since I last checked. If this is the case, the owner of rhpl will reassign it to the correct current component.

What happens if you add: skipddc resolution=800x600 at the boot command line? You may also need to play with that resolution parameter a little bit.

Closing due to lack of response by reporter. If this still happens in FC5 final, please reopen.
