Description of problem:
Video Card S3 Trio64V+, was causing my problem, when I changed the video card, Fedora installed correctly. Once I had Fedora installed I put this video card back in the PC and it froze again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to install Fedora Core 4
2.System hung every time attempting to load Anaconda
3.Replace with substitute PCI Video card
Actual Results: I could install Fedora Core 4 with this video card.
Expected Results: It should have loaded Anaconda and allowed my to proceed with the install
Unfortunately, what's burned on the installation CD is permanent, so if the
GUI installation fails, that is pretty much a permanent thing for the given
OS release. ie: there's no way to fix the installer once the OS is released
Having said that, you've indicated that the problem occurs also after the
OS starts up after a successful install with a different video card.
Using the S3 card that you're having the problem with, please run:
"system-config-display --reconfig" manually, and then run "startx" from the
commandline to manually test X. If the system locks up, please reboot back
into console mode (nongraphical).
After this, attach the uncompressed X server log and config file from your
installed system to the report as individual attachments using the link
below, and we'll try to diagnose from there.
Thanks in advance.
