Description Michal Jaegermann 2000-09-26 17:36:50 EDT
On ev56 Alpha (UX) with Permedia 2 graphics card anaconda booted
into graphics mode deteriorates with every screen. The first screen
is ok, on the next one help text looks like that:

Which language would
you like <junk, junk> during <junk>
installation and <junk ...>
system default <junk ...>
<junk> Linux <junk> install
Choose <junk ....>

Toggling "Hide Help"/"Show Help" does not have any problems but
does not improve anything in a displayed help text.

Anaconda lockups completely on a "Keyboard Configuration" screen
showing only "Mode/Layout/Dead Keys" text on a gray background and
nothing more.  Mouse pointer in this moment is still active but
no reaction from any buttons or a keybord.

A workaround: run anaconda in a text mode which is mostly ok.

Comment 1 Brock Organ 2000-10-17 16:53:08 EDT
does X in the post-install environment also have this trouble (ie generic X
problem) or is it fine, and it is just the graphics mode in anaconda ...?
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2000-10-17 17:32:42 EDT
No, regular X  works just fine provides this is 4.0.1a. :-)

Actually 3.3.6-33 works as well, but "less perfect".:-)  See #17896.
Version 3.3.6-20 from 6.2 distribution on the same hardware does
not show any problems.
