Anaconda puts machine in unviewable video mode
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:38 EDT
New Linux install. Can't get past the anaconda startup in graphical
Last prompt in session one:
"Waiting for X server to start."
Session seven has switched to an unviewable video mode -- invalid scan
rate. (The monitor is quite capable of anything reasonable -- all the way
up to 1600x1200 @80 Hz.)
Applied the anaconda 20001009 update and had same results.
If install using text mode, I have no problem, but would like to use X, so
I am looking for a solution!

Please attach the output from the lspci command.
Also - does X work if you configure it with the Xconfigurator command?
also, are you able to perform a text install ... (as a workaround :) ) ...?

Text install works fine. Not able to start Xconfigurator, as the text install
does not seem to have installed the necessary packages. Any guidance towards
configuring X manually would be appreciated.
Could you also attach the output from 'lspci -n' please?
