Missing driver for Cirrus graphics ?
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:18 EST
Description of problem:
Graphical install fails to start on QEMU 0.7.1, due to X server being unable to
load a cirrus_alpine module. QEMU emulates a Cirrus Logic GD 5446 graphics card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start QEMU
2. Boot guest from CD
3. Accept defaults to start graphical install
Install halts with the message:
mini-wm: Fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server :1.0.
Graphical installation process should start.
(EE) Failed to load module "cirrus_alpine" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) No devices detected
Fatal server error:
No screens found
I don't see that in the xorg-x11-drv-cirrus package
Due to an X.Org oversight, the cirrus_laguna and cirrus_alpine sub-drivers are
missing from the cirrus driver package in modular X currently. I believe this
is fixed in CVS however, and should be part of the RC3 release in a few days,
which we'll be updating to shortly.
Thanks for the report.
