Description of problem:
I downloaded the FC4 ISOs and attempted to install on an EPIA 800 system. When I went the default route (graphical installation) my graphics card (Integrated Trident Cyberblade Generic) and monitor were detected properly but I got a white raster as soon as it switches to the GUI portion of the setup.
I tried changing BIOS settings that pertain to the video card (Shared memory etc), but nothing seems to help.
I installed in tect mode, and the install works, but when I boot the system for the first time, I get the white raster when the GUI loads (I can hear the system continuing to boot though).
The system is (nothing special):
VIA EPIA Mini-ITX w/ VIA EDEN 800 Processor
- integrated Trident Cyberblade AGP Video
- integrated, NIC, Audio USB etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from FC4 install disc 1
Does booting with 'linux nofb' help?
No it does not. I can install in textmode, but as soon as i do a normal
startup, i get the white raster again.
If you do a text mode install, does X work afterwards?
