Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12354
Bad XFree 4.0 configuration.

Text mode install.
Voodoo3 3500 AGP card (with TV RF in/out, and gobs of stuff). 16 MB RAM.
The text mode installer did detect the Voodoo, but despite that, it
generated a pretty awful XF86Config-4, listing the only available
resolution as 640x480, 8 bits.
I think I can do better than that :-).

Here's the generated XF86Config-4 that came out of the installer.

Here an error-filled log of XFree86-4 cranking up with this configuration.
this has been added to the winston scrub list ... thanks for your report!
X 4.0.1 in beta3 managed to generate a somewhat usable config. With a Voodoo3
16MB card, a monitor with 30-66Khz horizontal frequency and 50-100hz vertical
frequency, the GUI installer configured a 1280x1024 8bit display.
Ideally, I would've liked to get 1280x1024 32bit display - which I eventually
obtained via Xconfigurator.
