Description Chris Adams 2007-08-10 20:32:19 EDT
I have a Thinkpad Z60m with ATI Radeon Mobility X600 graphics (LCD is 1280x800). When I start the installer (rawhide on 2007-08-10) and X starts, the display is messed up. In the upper left, I get the "normal" install display at maybe 800x600 (just a guess). The rest of the screen is garbage except for the pointer. When I try to click however, I have to have the pointer at the place the button would be if the video was stretched to full screen (does that explanation make sense?). I switched to a text console to check something and switched back, and then the "normal" part was shifted part of the way off the screen and I couldn't see enough to use the keyboard for install, so I gave up. I'm not sure what to file this against (anaconda, xorg-x11-drv-ati, something else), so I'm starting here.

This is something related to how anaconda sets up the video; I installed using just the keyboard in graphical mode, and the resulting system works fine (no problems with X).

Can we get /var/log/anaconda.xlog attached to this bug, please?
Comment 3 Chris Adams 2007-08-15 23:48:10 EDT
Sorry, I was testing something else, so that install is gone. I guess this is the same as /tmp/ramfs/X.log during install? I'm attaching that (from just after the first X-based screen).

Created attachment 161429 [details] X log from anaconda

Please try this with the f8t2 installer (once it's out), there's a new radeon driver there that probably resolves this.

Working with F8 release.
