Description Alex Bruno 2004-04-19 09:13:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
When looking at a hwbrowser window of installed components, it
correctly id's the graphics card as a Quadra 4 900 series card.  It
loaded, however, Nvidia GeForece 4 MX (generic) drivers for the card.
 There isn't any apparent corruption or loss of graphical abilities,
but the probed results are not being correctly passed to the driver
selection for X.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have Quadra 4 900 series card.
2.Proceed through a graphical installation; noting the probed values given
3.Post-install, look at the output of hwbrowser and compare what was
detected, and what driver was installed.

Actual Results:  Same as described in bug description

Expected Results:  Should have ID'd a Quadra 4 900 series, and
installed a Quadra driver for X.

Fixed in hwdata CVS. May appear in a future update release if we
rebuild for other reasons, otherwise, will be in RHEL 4.
