Description Joaquim d'Souza 2006-06-15 16:28:45 EDT
Description of problem: Installation hangs after probing for video card on 
both linux graphical installation and linux text installation. In graphical 
installation the screen goes yellow after "starting x server...5...4..." it 
doesn't get any further. In linux text the screen just hangs blue. I have read 
all of the posts like this but none of them help. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Run linux or linux text installation. 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.See above 
Actual results: 
The screen hangs yellow in linux and blue in linux text. 
Expected results: 
The install will go normally like on my other computers. 
Additional info: 
I have 2 SCSI hard drives, but they are both set up to use RAID. I have a DVD 
rw as my IDE master. I do not have any other IDE drives.

Does booting with 'linux noprobe' help?
Comment 2 Joaquim d'Souza 2006-06-21 11:50:51 EDT
No, but the screen does turn to green instead of yellow...
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-06-25 21:21:33 EDT

Please try FC6 test 2 and let me know if this is still broken for you.  There's
been a good bit of work done recently on X configuration and startup.
