When probing the hardware during the start of Anaconda it properly detects the
video card and the mouse but fails to detect my Optiquest V-95.

System-config-display has it in the device database.

It also fails for the i386 architecture it used to work for i386 in FC2, 3, and 4. 

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start an install.

Here's the output of lspci as requested

A full search of my system (FC5T2) fails to find dmidecode, so I can't give you
that output.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-01-28 00:38:40 EST
Monitor probing isn't supported on x86_64 due to the fact that we use real-mode
BIOS calls which can't be done once you've transitioned to long mode.
