Description G.Wolfe Woodbury 2006-02-19 00:24:09 EST
Description of problem: Starting anaconda finds the PCI card first and uses that when the active card is the AGP card. (Notting said to file against rhpxl) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. upgrade FC4(updated) to rawhide (2006-02-18 fc5t3?) 2. 3. Actual results: finds PCI card and fails to start X server on that card (no monitor attached) instead of the active AGP card (trident) Expected results: Additional info: work1: Celeron(Coppermine)P3@600MHz 256MBRAM AGP Trident Cyberblade/i1 PCI ATI Via chipset(MSI mobo) etc.

Assumption: this worked in test1/test2? Probably what needs to happen is that we only prepend the first non-vesa card we find to the list of cards, as opposed to all of them.
Comment 2 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2006-02-19 01:05:33 EST
assumption correct. AGP found first in t1 and t2 and rawhide consistently until 2006-02-17 Somehow the active card (text consoles) needs to be found consistently.

FC5t3 install: still tries to use the ATI(pci) rather than the trident(AGP) card in my system. Perhaps if it detects two video cards a dialogue could come up to select the main card? There is a dual-head tab on one of the configuration dialogues. I am happy that FC5t3 noticed that I had messed up the X config and went through some troubleshooters to fix up the config. It cleared hte xorg.conf and started again with detection and eventually found the trident card! Well done.

Try tomorrow's rawhide, which will have a new rhpxl package that hopefully fixes this.

rawhide of 2006-02-25 works properly (IMO) and finds the right card.
