Description Need Real Name 2000-08-03 20:07:24 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?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-08-04 15:32:37 EDT
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?
