Description Tim Pepper 2004-07-03 02:38:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US;
rv:1.5.1) Gecko/20031120

Description of problem:
Install is hanginging on my IBM Intellistation Z Pro (6221-42U) after
probing the video card and monitor for a graphical install.

lspci shows the card to be "nVidia Corporation NV18GL [Quadro4 NVS AGP
8x] (rev a2)", pci did=0168.  The monitor (IBM P260 6552-23N) is
probed, but on the other virtual console I can see that the probe has
complained that it got bad data.  The card supports dual head and had
a splitter cable out the back to two of the older type 25pin connectors.

Installing 'linux headless' works, although I hit another install hang
with post install processing at 50%, which I'll open a defect on
separately.  None of noprobe, skipddc, noapic, apm=off, acpi=off,
pci=noacpi, nofb, text, smp/up, or mem size make any difference.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 with default options.
