Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 158632
Installer's graphic display clipped
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:06 EST
Machine is the 2xPPC-64 G5 tank.
The graphical install screen, when using a VGA, is oversize, as in the actual
screen is probably 1000x1000 but it is only displaying the top left 800x800 on
the VGA screen.
Reproduce by attempting the (default) graphical install.
What sort of monitor do you have hooked up? The G5 on my desk with a 20" cinema
display came up fine with an install from yesterday's rawhide.
Can you get the X config as well as the output of ddcprobe?
It's a 21 inch VGA monitor, _not_ an LCD.
How (exactly) do I get the X config and ddcprobe?
You can grab /etc/X11/xorg.conf from the installed system or /tmp/X* from the
installer. And run ddcprobe to get ddcprobe output :-)
I can't install the system cos the "OK" button is positioned [virtually] about
5cm below the bottom of my monitor and my mouse doesn't reach down that far!
How can get to this information while sitting at that first screen?
Ctrl-Alt-F2 to switch to tty2 which has a console.

Was this better in FC4 final?
Closing due to lack of response by reporter.
If this problem still occurs in FC4 or FC5 final, please
reopen and supply my information.
