Description Michael Cool 2006-03-21 06:40:09 UTC
Description of problem:
on certain Nvidia cards (mainly XFX cards), the screen will not be displayed 
properly, therefor anaconda is inusable (in my particular case, i get green 
stripes, and no image. the problem lies in the fact that Anaconda forces 
itself to use the 'nv' driver instead of 'vesa' (it would work with vesa)

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

How reproducible:
Boot the FC5 install, with a XFX graphics card) and just run Anaconda

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
