Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104498
graphical installer doesn't work with GeForce FX video card
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:38:47 EDT
When I attempt to install Red Hat Linux 9.0.93 on my AMD Athlon XP
system which has an ASUS GeForce FX 5200 video card, the installer
gets as far as:
Waiting for start X server to start...log located in /tmp/X.log
Then the screen goes blank and the monitor enters suspend mode.
Looking in /tmp/X.log, I see:
(EE) Failed to load module glx (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module record (module does not exist, 0)
The modules in /tmp/XF86Config.text (just in case it's relevant)
Attempting to start an X server with the "vesa" driver fails, but
the "nv" driver seems to work. The "nv" driver is automatically
detected when running "XFree86 -configure", but I presume the
installer always uses the "vesa" driver, and it seems this driver
does not work with that version of X (XFree86 4.3.0 9 May 2003).
This sounds like it was solved in bug 99535.
Could you provide the lspci -n information for your video card?
