Description of problem:
FC3T2 tried to install on a PC with
ï¿½ Intelï¿½ 865GV chipset
ï¿½ Intelï¿½ ICH5 chipset
Video: Integrated in 865GV NB.
The install process drops into text mode.
THe graphical install process is possible not detecting the video chips?
I also tried this for a machine with
Intel 815 shipset.
THe boot display says:
loaded e100 from /modules/moduels.cgs
modules Card 815 not found
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert FC3T2 boot disk
2. install drops in text mode
Actual Results: drops into text mode
Expected Results: Should be in graphical install mode
This works fine on my i865 box (it's my primary test box :). Does X
work post-install? Can you switch to tty2 when X startup fails and
grab /tmp/X.log and /tmp/ramfs/X.log?
after fiddling with the bios (actually turning on SATA even though
nothing was connected on this computer) only PATA disk - it now
boots up correctly on the 865 machine.
Perhaps there is something else on the 815 machine - it was just old
and setting there so I thought I would try it....
So this does work now on the 865 machine.
