Description Jim Cornette 2006-11-03 11:43:46 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.

How reproducible:
Just press enter at the boot: screen of the installer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Allow system to start.
2. get mini-wm error
3. reboot
4. Specify 'linux xdriver=sis' at the boot: prompt
5. Install the system successfully via the GUI 
Actual results:

Not specifying the driver caused failure. Manually specifying the driver 
allowed successful installation.

Expected results:

Not needing to specifically tell anaconda that I had a particular video 

Additional info:

Including lspci -n in attachement for needed information to add to the 
hardware listing.

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.
