Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?

Comment 2 Jean-Denis Langelier 2003-11-22 01:01:32 UTC
I am experiencing exactly the same problem.  I have a S3 968 powered
Diamond Stealth  64 with 4Mb of VRAM.  I tried booutting with 'linux
allowcddma', but the problem persists.  The X server seems to come up
but is immediately sht down with the following error message:

Running anaconda, the Fedora Core system installer - please wait...
Probing for video card:   S3 968 (generic)
Probong for monitor type:   Unknown monitor
Probing for mouse type:   Generic - 3 Button Mouse (USB)

        /mnt/source done
you may safely reboot your system

I also switched the Stealth 64 for a ATI Radeon 64 VIVO (recognised as
a 7200) and everythiong went fine, the graphical install started.  The
issue probably lies with the driver for S3 968 based video cards.

I would really apreciate if someone could tell me how to get around
this problem.

Thanks!

I'm using a TNT2 video card, same thing.

Comment 4 Alvaro Silva Iribarrem 2004-03-24 19:19:00 UTC
I´ve experinced the same difficulty, but a text installation ('linux 
text' in the boot) was enough to solve the problem. Anaconda managed 
to install fedore with no further problem in the text installation.

i've the same problem, but i tried with the version 3 and i386 hardware.

Comment 7 Marco Varanda 2005-05-04 03:14:20 UTC
Jeremy Katz - Did you try to change video card ? After you finish install, you
could change to first video card. Sometimes I install with text interface (use
F2 to choose sub-packages). I always install servers without graphical
intercace, but you can choose them in text mode, after install, should works fine.
Once works with "linux lowres" at initial option.
