Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135699
FC3T3 fails to start X on Asus P4S800D+Geforce FX 5900 card
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:51 EST
Description of problem: X Server cannot be started on FC3T3 with Asus
P4S800D motherboard and Asus 9950 Geforce FX 5900 graphics card. Upon
firstboot the X Server cannot be configured. The monitor flashes and
in the text screen I can see that it discovered the FX graphics card
but fails to initalize X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC3T3 went fine
2. Reboot went fine
3. circumventing Problem #135694 by appending kernel boot parameters
"nousb nohotplug acpi=off apm=off" continues boot process into
firstboot, which attempts to configure X but fails.
Additional info: didnt yet find a way to circumvent this
I don't think that video card is supported in FC3 stock. Paste
the output of "lspci -vvn" here and I'll have a look.
