Description Gwen Stouthuysen 2005-01-10 10:51:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)

Description of problem:
There is a mismatch between the Kernel and Xserver
It starts when trying to install using the graphical anaconda.
I see only fog as soon as the xserver has started.
The text dased Anaconda works fine.
Then I have to try a few times (pushing the reset button) before I 
can finish the install (this is again always graphical).
Then I cant work: the login screen appairs (KDE system) but as soon 
as the personal KDE session starts I have the fog again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
standard core 3 release (CD version)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. just reinstall core 3

Actual Results:  fog screen

Expected Results:  correct xserver settings

Additional info:

I tried this install several times this weekend.

I did the installation after a failed update of a core 2 system.
This update resulted in a xsystem that did not refresh the background 
and had problems with applets and widgets. I knew how to use the 
updatemanager and thus I realised to update the kernel and KDE base.
This system then worked fine but samba crashed, updating this did 
fail and I decided to reinstall with format the complete package. 
Resulting is a complete useless system.

Finally I installed the core 2 back over the system and everything 
works as before.

recreating the install CD with the latest versions of all modules 
should solve this. (updating the first attempt to Core 3 did solve 
the fog/corrupt xserver)

"There is a mismatch between the Kernel and Xserver"

There is no real relationship between the two packages apart from 3D. 
this sounds more like an X bug.

It could be that the problem is in the 3D part.
I know that my graphics adapter does not support this.
It is an "old" Dell P3 800Mhz system with integrated graphics adapter.
Comment 4 Gwen Stouthuysen 2005-01-11 17:29:40 EST
The graphics controller is an integrated Intel 82810E DC-133 chipset
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2005-02-11 15:03:49 EST
This isn't kernel or 3D related actually.  It is a known problem
reported numerous times in bugzilla for i815/i830 video, which
is fixed in rawhide, soon to be released as an update for FC3
as well.
