no graphical output
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
No graphical video output
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Boot in graphic mode or
boot in text mode and execute startx
- garbled screen, random pixels lit (DVI) or blank screen (analog)
- sometimes X hangs the pc, requiring the reset button
- when running RHEL4, it is sometimes possible to recover by doing Ctrl-Alt-
Bckspace and run a 'setsysfont'
AMD64 3000+ CPU on Asus A8V mainboard with 1 GB RAM
XFX GeForce 6800LE AGP videocard
ViewSonic VP930 LCD monitor
The screen is currently connected both via DVI and an analog connection (via
KVM switch). I did some checking by using only one connection and/or the KVM
switch removed, but it didn't seem to make much of a difference.
The same problem exists in RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4.
Doing an install in graphical mode works however.
I am not at that particular machine right now, but I will post the logs later
