Installation hangs after video card probe
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 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):
Run linux or linux text installation.
Steps to Reproduce:
The screen hangs yellow in linux and blue in linux text.
The install will go normally like on my other computers.
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?
No, but the screen does turn to green instead of yellow...
Can you provide more complete information about what hardware you have?
ok well i have a 120 gigabyte diamondmax10 SATA 150 hard drive, an 80 gigabyte
caviar se SATA 150 hard drive and i have RAID stripe stretched across all of
the 1st disk and 30gigabytes of the second. I have a 512 megabyte nvidia
geforce 6500 graphics card and a gigabyte of DDR 500 ram. I also have 19"
suyama moniter with DVI.
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.
