Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 with 2.6.5 kernel
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install fc2 on thinkpad a21p
Created attachment 100632 [details]
Working FC2 xorg.conf from IBM A21p
Found this when getting ready to do a bug entry on anaconda upgrade on
A21p. While doing upgrade system "froze" did not proceed for a long
period. Tried to change to VC2 and screen did a slow fade to white.
After that, no response to any keyboard/mouse inputs. Had to power
down. On reboot found new kernel working but many packages not
upgraded. See comments to 123858. System is working now after
manually completing upgrade. Attached working xorg.conf.
Should note, need "linux acpi=off" for installation, and added to GRUB
