Description of problem:
There are video card issues in two systems, x86_64 and i386. Details are as below:

Appreciate if somebody will confirm a spec of the two video cards which can work
fine in our OS and supported by the two motherboards. Thanks very much.

GeForce part might be related to bug 184006, which is closed and tracked
upstream (see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6212 ). However,
everyone I see mention fedora only as other distributions seems to work
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2006-10-03 11:59:38 EDT
Please, file separate bugs for separate issues.  Otherwise they're impossible to
Comment 4 Adam Jackson 2006-10-03 12:06:03 EDT
This bug is for the GeForce 6800GS configuration in the initial report.

Please attach the output of 'lspci' and 'kudzu -p -c video', and the Xorg.0.log
file from the failed startup using the nv driver.

That looks a lot like a successful startup to me... Reporter, can you clarify
what the failure mode was here?
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 14:15:02 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.
