Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 EDT
Description of problem: Display freezes during installation and computer halts.
Monitor screen becomes yellowish. This could not be corrected with Installtion
parameter "linux noprobe". No linux driver available on manufacturer's site
www.giga-byte.com . Model GA-8LD533
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Fedora core 5 .
Platform i386. Installation media: iso-dvd . Media check: passed
How reproducible:Every time trying to install from installation media(bootable0
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install from iso-dvd downloaded media on the abovementioned system
Should automatically configure the display and x-window
This does not appear to be a "redhat-config-bind" (now "system-config-bind")
bug at all - did you mean "system-config-display" ?
I am not sure. But I have somehow managed to install the Fedora core 5 from
DVD-ROM now. It has been installed and the bootloader is also configured. I have
microsoft windowsXP on third partition of my HDD and bootloader has been
configured in MBR. But I am unable to see the Fedora welcome screen where I
could select the OS to boot and after a while my system is automatically
booting-up in windowsXP. Moreover, after installation of fedora , the post
installation screens have never appeared. I have previously updated my BIOS and
the current version is :Intel 845GL AGPSet BIOS for 8LD533 F4 AWARD BIOS. Intel
application accelarator is also installed on Windows platform. Other softwares
like : Gigabyte utility manager is also installed. It seems that fedora could
not register the entry for dual boot in boot.ini. When, I am trying to manually
configure the boot.ini with "bootcfg" command on windows, it returns Error:
Unable to reset permission on boot.ini.
Reporter, have you experienced these issues with the Fedora Core 6 installer?
