Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15320
RFE:Support for installing on machine with more than one video card
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
When the graphical installer starts, it puts my screen into what I believe
to be 320x200x8bpp mode. The installer is therefore unusable in *any*
mode, as the text-mode installer appears to be unable to assign mount
points to software RAID arrays and the graphical installer is 4 times
larger than will fit on a 320x200 screen.
I have a Sony CPD-G500 monitor attached to a 3dfx Voodoo 5 video adapter.
Also, I have a Matrox Millennium (4MB, PCI) board attached to a Sony
D1726T-HS monitor, but the installer only uses the Voodoo 5 and the CPD-
G500, so I rather doubt the second screen is an issue. I am installing
from a burned copy of the pinstripe cd1 ISO which I downloaded last night.
Can you reproduce this Brock?
I removed the Millennium and the installer ran at the proper resolution. I
wonder why the Millennium would have caused the problem, given that the BIOS
lists AGP as the primary video device and X was running on the Voodoo 5.
I might also add that the Voodoo 5 is supported in XFree86 4.0.1, but is not
included in the installer's list of video cards.
We don't currently support installing on machines with two active video cards.

Is this still a problem with 7.1 or the recent roswell beta?
