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

Created attachment 100091 [details]

The enclosed patch causes the IGP 340M to be probed correctly after install.
If you can tell me where the installer version of the PCI table is in the iso

Are these IDs upstream at pciids.sf.net? If not, please submit them there.
Should be fixed in 0.131-1, if not earlier.
