Does booting with 'linux nofb' help at all?

Comment 3 Yurii Kantonistov 2005-06-28 20:18:39 UTC
Have the same problem with mobo ASUS A8N-E Deluxe and video PCI-E Radeon X700.
Nothing did help with FC3 installer (nofb, lowres, etc., I have tried nearly
everything). Now with FC4 things did not improve either.
I can attach anaconda log if it might help, but please advise me how to 
get it and from where.
In text mode everything works fine. What I can do except hardware replacement?
P.S. Cannot get XWindows to work in FC3 on this PC.

Comment 4 Greg Tataryn 2005-07-28 00:39:09 UTC
I am having the same problem with the following specs:
ASUS P4T-E moboard
Intel Pentium 4 2.0GHz
ATI Radeon 9600

FC3 worked just fine, and text mode for FC4 works fine.  I have tried nofb and
resolution=800x600 any further suggestions?

(This is a mass update of bugs which have been in the NEEDINFO state unmodified
for over a year and have not been confirmed for a still supported version of
Fedora Core.)

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
