NVS280 text mode install and X will not start
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:01 EST
Description of problem:
When installing RHEL3U2B WS x86_64 on a ia32e box, the install is in
text mode and once the install completes, X will not start because
there is no XF86Config file.
On the flip side - when installing RHEL3U2B WS IA32 on the same HW,
the install is graphical and X starts fine.
The graphics is PCI NVIdia NVS280
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1a. Install RHEL3U2 Beta WS x86-64 w/ NVS280 on ia32e - it's always
in text mode.
1b. X fails with
Fatal server error:
no screens found
2a. Install RHEL3U2 Beta WS ia32 2/ NVS280 on x86_64 - it's always
2b. X succeeds
NVS280 installs textually and X fails to start
NVS280 installs graphically and X starts
RHEL3U2Beta WS - IA32 and x86_64 behaved differently
Is there a comment about no video hardware found, assuming headless?
No video hardware found, assuming headless?
DISPLAY varaible not set. Starting up text mode!
Okay, I have this fixed for the final U2 release then.
Confirmed - it's fixed. Thanks!
