Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201163
Anaconda doesn't detect monitor on dual-head system
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda finds and uses the active (first) video card on my system,
but does not properly detect the monitor type. The installer display
is correct, but after firstboot, the lack of a proper monitor section
in the xorg.conf file makes for real problems. This may actually
apply to a component in the xorg-x11 programs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
this has been going on for a few days now, three installs and
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide of 2006-08-02
no monitor is detected or configured
monitor should be detected and configured properly
Celeron (Coppermine) @600MHz 256MB RAM MSI-6382 mobo
Trident Cyberblade/i1 and ATI Radeon (Mach64) video cards
VIA Chipsets etc....
can you attach the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file please from when the machine boots?
you may need to use runlevel 3.
