Description Andrew Elmore 2005-06-02 19:22:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050131

Description of problem:
The installation console is divided into two, each part in the upper corners of the screen, overlaying the white OpenFirmware background.  The pixels appear to be interlaced between each half of the console.

My configuration is a IBM RS/6000 7044-270 with 4x375MHz Power3+ cpus, 4GB memory, and a GXT3000P graphics card, and IBM P260 monitor at 1280x1024 resolution.  Looks like the linux kernel doesn't support the graphics card, and I'm betting the Xorg xserver doesn't either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL AS4 on this hardware.

Expected Results:  I would expect the console to present a legible display.

Additional info:

I am using a serial console for installation, which seems to be working.
