Description of problem:
I have an Averatec 3120V Laptop www.averatec.com.
The version of Fedora Core, I have is From Linux Format DVD. After
pressing enter from prompt after booting from DVD/cd. The
installation stops with the LCD screen overloaded. When I switched
screen with Fn F5 it had stopped at /sbin/loader.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from dvd/cd
2.press enter to start installation
Actual Results: over bright LCD screen and everything stops.
Expected Results: a least see an install screen.
This has nothing to do with the fedora-release package, reassigning.
Does booting with 'linux nofb' help?
nofb takes away the ugly lcd screen. Still stops on /sbin/loader.
