Description of problem:
Noticed a strange bug on my computer with an ASUS V9520/TD (GeforceFX
5200 chip) graphic card when starting the Fedora Core 1 installation.
When I use the VGA output, there is no problem, but when I use the
DVI output, I get a blank screen when the graphical installation is
started. I have an Eizo L565 17" TFT screen.
There is no "out of scan range" on the screen when switching to the
bank screen so it isn't the screen. When I switch to console with
Alt+F3 I see thet the system is still active (you can go further in
the installation process by typing "F12" on the blank screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect your graphic card on DVI output
2. Boot Fedora Core 1 installation in graphical mode
3. Wait and you will get a blank screen after hardware probe
