Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144368
Bad behaviour of the graphical installation display
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:05 EST
Description of problem:
Well, indeed I have got an old compaq Deskpro -pentium 3- with an
Compaq S710 screen and I use it for test purpose. Thus, I have tryed
to install the new update -3- of the Red Hat Advanced Server on it.
Ok, I know that it is not the best platform to install this OS.
But it only for test you know.
Anyway, I have a little problem with the graphical wizard during the
installation. Indeed, it does not work properly. I have multiple line
of different colors. Nothing readable.
Of course, in order to bypass this problem I use the text
installation however it is less user friendly. Agree with me?
Well, I thinks it is due to a bad diplay setting set by anaconda.
By the way, it works fine with the first release of RHAS 3 and the
video card is ATI but I am not sure; the vga compatible controller is
Intel Corp. 82815 CGC.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 3)
Well, Have the same device provided in the Compaq Desktop EN and a
Compaq S710 screen and do a basic grphical installation.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have the same device provided in the Compaq Desktop EN
2. Insert the RHAS V.3 Update 3
3. Begin the Installation and wait after the first graphical screen.
4. You should see what is the problem.
The screen is a kind of multicolor line.
The graphical installation should appear.
Well, I you have any question... You know my email address.
Does it work better if you boot with 'linux nofb'?
Unfortunatly, it does not work better. Even if I did not mention it
in my provious message. I had already try this trick.
Sorry to have forgotten to mention it.
I have this same problem... only I have a compaq v410 monitor... If you have
found a solution to this please e-mail it to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's an image of what my error looks like.
If you boot the installer into text mode and hit ctrl-alt f2 can you paste the
python -c "import kudzu; print
Do you have a monitor INF file with the monitor?
