SIS video not recognized during installation of FC6
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
When attempting to install a new system with a SIS630 integrated video,
anaconda bombs out. If specifying xdriver=sis during installation the
installation is successful.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC6 released version.
Just press enter at the boot: screen of the installer.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Allow system to start.
2. get mini-wm error
4. Specify 'linux xdriver=sis' at the boot: prompt
5. Install the system successfully via the GUI
Not specifying the driver caused failure. Manually specifying the driver
allowed successful installation.
Not needing to specifically tell anaconda that I had a particular video

Sounds like a problem with automatically detecting the hardware.
Yes, the lspci is by request of Adam Jackson. Post installation is fine.
I did another install on the same type of computer, I believe. We have two
models. Anyway the install went fine on the later model which has a sis video
card. I did not need to add any parameters at boot. I did change the default
video settings fo memory to about 4 times the default. Closing bug.
