X Installer and unsupported refresh rate
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:34 EST
Description of problem: Could not perform graphical install due to unsupported
refresh rate settings. My monitor is TFT Samsung 740N. If I switch to text
console with CTRL-ALT-F2 for example, and back to X, image appears and monitor
warns me about unsupported refresh rate, after 10 seconds image disappears and
monitor lose sync again. Than I have to repeat switching to console and X.
I was stubborn, and manage to answer all of the question, and installation
started and crashed on 15% complete (anaconda uses 100% of CPU time for infinite
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Matrox MGA G200 + Samsung 740N + NFS install = bug
I tried it with 2 different Matrox cards (one G100 PCI 4M and one G200 AGP 8MB
with the same results).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installation over NFS on 740N+G200 and wait ;)
Actual results: Monitor can not display image due to unsupported referesh rate
Expected results: X server should be up and running
Additional info: You may switch to basic 640x480/60 Hz refresh rate during
installation - 740N is not too old to be unsupported.
Please attach the Xorg.0.log from an affected system.
Sorry, I am unable to attach log :( It was long time ago and I have deleted
install DVD image
