Description of problem:
Bad: install appears to hang
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load FC4 i386
2.use graphical install
Actual Results: In graphical mode after 'X' screen is diplayed, screen turns and stays white.
nothing happens with normal key strokes, enter, space, tab, arrows, etc...
Expected Results: Fedora Core graphic should display
In graphical mode after 'X' screen is diplayed, screen turns and stays white.
After playing around with function keys, found using Fn+F3 then Fn screen goes to proper Fedora Graphics and install continues without a hitch.
This is a problem on FC4 but not in FC1
Loading onto an IBM Thinkpad 770Z laptop
I had no problems on two desktop systems with a CRT
Also FC4 did not load in 1024x768 native resolution, but in 800x680
After figuring out the Fn+F3 then Fn keystrokes I was abel to reconfigure to LCD 1024x768 in display properties.
From my non-programmer perspective, I think it has to do with the screen restore function after closing the screen on a laptop
Does booting with 'linux nofb' help?
