Description Tom Marchant 2006-02-26 04:51:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Graphics detection of the Intel 82810 graphics controller still doesn't work
with FC5test3.  It is better than with test2, but Anaconda sets the resolution
to 640x480, and with that resolution, the buttons at the bottom of the screen
are not visible.  Text mode install is only marginally better than with test2,
and I have not yet run through the pain of using it to install.  Reference bug
183078 for text mode problems.  I tried to boot anaconda with linux
resolution-800x600 but still got the 640x480 display.

The computer is an HP Pavilion 520n with i810 chipset on the motherboard.  It
has a 1.3 GHz Celeron, 512 MB memory and a 120 GB ATA disk drive.  There was no
problem installing FC4.  It did not require any special setup.  FC4 and Windows
both are able to run up to the monitor's maximum resolution of 1024x768.  The
monitor is a HP Pavilion mx50, which has the same specifications as the m50.
