Description of problem:
I explained the problem in previous panel. Here it is a again.
My system (hdb) Core4 on 80gig drive.  Core5 on hda (200gig). Both dedicated to Linux. Processor is AMD 192mhz, 756meg memory, built-ins for audio, graphics (ATI graphics). 

Boot is via bios.

Annaconda could not determine the monitor type, and put the default. I tried to change default, but only result was system lockup. This was detected by the keyboard lights that did not follow the key status of upper case, numlock, etc.

Power off and reboot, leaving values to default for monitor, and then setting monitor later after install was the work around.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Core5 t2, Jan 16th

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Got display to configure monitor and resolution.
2. Could not change monitor or resolution
3. Lockup occurred after 2 attempts

Actual Results:  System lockup, requiring power off and reboot.

Expected Results:  Should have had the same options as for Core4. Monitor selection and resolution, as well as sweep frequency should have been available for setting.

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2007-01-29 23:51:58 UTC
We no longer do system-config-display in anaconda at all, so this should never
happen anymore.  Please reopen if this bug still occurs in FC6 or later.
