2 videos plates, one pci, another one onboard, the active is the PCI and anaconda recognizes onboard
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:33 EST
Description of problem:
I possess 2 plates of video, one onboard sis 630 and another one pci Nvidia. In
boot BIOS of my system the active device is the plate pci, but during the
installation the plate is recognized onboard.In redhat 9,0 this did not happen!
The established installation of redhat 9,0 is much more interesting of what the
Suggestion mine, redhat 9,0 comes back with the installation style, this redhat
was classic and its finishing was very good;)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat Enterprise 5.0 beta 1
Steps to Reproduce:
only a complementation, the problem of detention of the video plate also happens
in the fedora, if they will be able inform the collaborating friends I am thankful
Only remembering, this did not happen in redhat 9.0 ;)
Can you provide the output of kudzu -p -c VIDEO?
kudzu detects the 2 plates when this initiating , I remove the configuration of
the plate onboard and configures the plate pci, with this decided ;)
The problem is:
- Because as much in the fedora, as in redhat, the installation detects the
plate onboard as being the used one, if I am using the plate pci ?
detail: in setup of the BIOS, I activated the plate pci, activating the plate
pci that it is the one that I use !!
The stranger, is that in redhat 9,0 install of redhat intelligently detected the
option that use at the moment
They come back to use the detention of video of install of redhat 9,0, it is
intelligent in the detention
but a suggestion, thanks ;)
We still need the output of "kudzu -p -c VIDEO"
desc: "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter"
desc: "nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x]"
Bill/Adam -- have any ideas on ways to distinguish which is correct?
Whichever one has VGA routed to it. Hopefully they're on different busses, in
which case you look at the VGA BridgeCtl bit of each bridge, and whichever one
has that set is the PCI bus with VGA active (otherwise on bus 0).
How would anaconda like such information delineated?
If kudzu provides us with some sort of value like vgaIsRouted or similar for
each card, then VideoCardInfo.__init__ can use the first video card with that
value set instead of just using the first one it knows about.
Adam - does that sound reasonable?
This looks like a purely rhpxl problem instead of anaconda, but I'll leave it
assigned to anaconda for now.
Still need an answer to my question in comment #9 and for kudzu to support
providing this information.
