Description Thomas M Steenholdt 2005-11-07 08:22:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051104 Fedora/1.5-0.5.0.rc1.tmus Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
On my new Shuttle SD11G5, video controller is not detected during installation and setup falls back to text mode. The video controller is i915gm (Intel Graphics
Media Accelerator 900, DVMT).

From initial tests on FC4 - X works nicely with the i810 driver.

As soon as i get to the box, i'll send you lspci output.

Let me know if you need something else

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installation on i915gm based graphics system

Actual Results:  Setup fails to detect and initialize graphics system during setup

Expected Results:  Setup should properly detect and initialize graphics system

If you manually configure it to use the i810 driver, does it work?

Comment 3 Thomas M Steenholdt 2005-11-08 19:13:10 UTC
In the latest rawhide version of xorg, it does not! I believe i saw somewhere
that i915 support will be in 6.8.3 and so it may make sense. However it DID work
at one point. I believe it was an FC4(updates/updates-testing) of xorg.
