Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193186
"Anaconda" does not install the video driver used in "xorg.conf"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
After a fresh install of Fedora Core rawhide, the "X" server is
unusable. I turns out that only the "VESA" driver package is
installed whereas the driver in "xorg.conf" is correctly set to
"savage" on the affected "IBM ThinkPad T23". Consequently, the
specified driver module cannot be loaded.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC rawhide.
2. Reboot the system.
Screen corrupted, after entering "ctrl-alt-bckspc", a console
message is issued according to which the requested driver module
was not found.
System should boot into graphical mode.
After installing the missing driver package by hand, everything
works as expected (setting the driver entry in "xorg.conf" to
"vesa" would of course have also worked). The issue seems to be
related to the recent upgrade of "X" to release 7.1. Prior to this,
all driver packages were installed by default, so the right one was
always present. After dropping this requirement, one has apparently
forgotten to tell "anaconda" that it has to install the driver
package corresponding to the driver entry in "xorg.conf".
