Description Richard Allen 2006-08-22 14:18:38 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting boot.iso (havent tried other install methods thus far) the screen
gets garbled

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The boot.iso from fc6t2

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put the boot.iso CD into a HP nx9420 and boot
Actual results:
Screen gets more and more garbled

Expected results:
No garbeling

Additional info:
fc5 had no problems on this machine.
It's hard to describe this problem and I know of no way to take a screenshot
this early in the boot process (before the GUI even starts) so I got low tech
and used my camera ;)
This garbeling continues untill the GUI kicks in and then the screen seems fine.

I opted not to attach the picture to this bugreport due to it's size.  It's
available on http://www.ra.is/boot.jpg

This should be fixed with the addition of some auditd type code in anaconda
