Description of problem:
Anaconda should detect my card as an "ATI Mobility M4" but instead
selects the driver for a "ATI Rage Mobilit 128". It then tries to
start anaconda at the default resolution 1400x1050 (and fails).
XIO: fatal IO error 104
In RHL9 it did the same thing except it started at 1024x768 (which
worked). I could then complete the install, change the driver, and
switch to 1400x1050 in post install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC1 on Latitude c800 with AIX M4.
Actual Results: Anaconda crashes on X load.
Expected Results: Should use the correct driver.
The resolution=800x600 kernel option doesn't cary over to anaconda and
it tries to start on 1400x1050 so I cond not do a low rez install.
Seems to be fixed in FC2 test 1.
