Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144128
all videocards have DRIVER set to veas in anaconda
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:05 EST
Description of problem:
Under the Anaconda environment when rhpl is used to detect and setup
the videocard it always sets the DRIVER key of the dict to 'vesa'.
The code looks for the path
"/usr/X11R6/%s/modules/drivers/%s_drv.o" %(libdir, card["DRIVER"])
to see if the X server module exists else it sets DRIVER to vesa. In
the Anaconda environment the X modules are not installed therefore all
cards get the vesa driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install CDs from U3 and U4. rhpl version 0.110.6-1.
Must use kickstart.
