Description Bryan Christ 2007-11-09 10:41:04 EST
Description of problem: Anaconda tries to start X for graphical install but fails. This happens when there are two video cards in the system. In this case, the video is Integrated Intel 915 video and ATI Rage 128 PCI video. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Configure a system similar to above mentioned. 2. Boot to F8 i386 DVD. 3. Watch Anaconda fall back to text mode. Actual results: Text mode install Expected results: Graphical mode install Additional info: I believe this is related to BZ issue 222945

Can you grab /tmp/ramfs/X.log and /tmp/xorg.conf from when it falls back?

forgot to capture xorg.conf from install time. do you want the broken post-install xorg.conf?
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-11-12 14:18:45 EST
/var/log/anaconda.xlog would be fine.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 00:07:10 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
