Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136960
video hangs several times during install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
At different times during the install, the video slows down and seems
to hang. The mouse moves *very* slowly and is only updated every few
seconds. There are random artifacts and text appears in the wrong
place. Changing to a console and back, sometimes more than once,
clears it up temporarily.

S3 Savage/IX video card
Does X work fine after installation?
No, same symptoms. I'm going to try adding the NoAccel and shadowFB
options to xorg.conf to see if that helps. With FC1, I had to use one
of those options to get the card to work reliably, and shadowFB was
the faster of the two.
Can you attach an uncompressed Xorg logfile along with your current

another xorg log

xorg.conf as created by install
I've now been using this system for an hour with the shadowFB option,
with no problems.
Reassigning to X. Either the bug needs fixing or the driver needs to
default to shadowFB
Please try the latest xorg-x11 from rawhide, which is currently
126.96.36.1994, and if the problem still exists, please file a bug
report in the X.org bug tracker at http://bugs.freedesktop.org
in the "xorg" component. Once you have filed your report in
the X.Org bug tracker, please paste the URL here and Red Hat
will track the issue in the X.Org bugzilla, and review any
fixes that become available for consideration in future FC
Thanks in advance.
Setting status to "NEEDINFO", awaiting results of testing with
xorg-x11 from rawhide.
Please test xorg-x11 6.8.2 from fc3-testing, and update the report to
indicate wether the problem still exists or not. If the problem persists,
please follow the instructions in comment #9 above, and we'll track the
issue upstream as well.
Thanks in advance.
Assuming problem is fixed now due to lack of feedback from last 3
requests. Closing bug as "RAWHIDE". If the problem is not resolved
in xorg-x11-6.8.2 in Fedora Core 4, open a bug report in X.Org bugzilla
located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org with full details, and paste
the URL here as requested in comment #9 above.
Setting status to "RAWHIDE".
