Description of problem:
I have a Supermicro 5015C-MT, based on the Intel E7221 chipset.
I can install Fedora 3 (resolution 800x600), but not Fedora 4. Fedora 4 hangs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the DVD in the computer
2.Follow the graphical installation procedure.
Actual Results: System hangs.
Expected Results: System continues.
Following exact the same procedure works under Fedora 3. After installing Fedora 3, upgrade to Fedora 4 hangs too.
And the option nofb did not help.
This problem is fixed in the latest fedora update of xorg-x11 (6.8.2-37.FC4.45).
You need to install FC4 in text mode, then update xorg-x11.
