Description Leonid Kanter 2006-11-21 13:08:20 EST
Description of problem:

X-server is unable to start on E7221 with default xorg.conf because it try to
allocate much more memory than actually available, because monitor reports mode
*Built-in mode "1920x1440".

system-config-display-1.0.45-1

How reproducible:

always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. system-config-display --reconfig --noui
2. start X
  
Actual results:

X server output:
(II) I810(0): Initial framebuffer allocation size: 8640 kByte                   
(EE) I810(0): Failed to allocate framebuffer. Is your VideoRAM set too low ??

Expected results:

X server should work

Reporter, are you able to reproduce this bug with the released (and upgraded to
the latest updates) RHEL, please?
Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-17 09:55:45 EST
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question?
Comment 4 Leonid Kanter 2008-01-17 11:33:18 EST
With latest updates, I'm unable to use i810 driver at all. It always trying to
allocate more memory than available, even if video mode is manually set to
1024x768 16bpp. Only vesa driver works. system-config-display-1.0.48,
xorg-x11-drv-i810 1.6.5-9.6. This card shoud be removed from list of supported
by i810 driver cards. I you comment out the line with this device (258A) in
i810.xinf, system-config-display create configuration for vesa driver and X works.

Hi,
the RHEL5.2 release notes will be dropped to translation on April 15, 2008, at
which point no further additions or revisions will be entertained.

a mockup of the RHEL5.2 release notes can be viewed at the following link:
http://intranet.corp.redhat.com/ic/intranet/RHEL5u2relnotesmockup.html

please use the aforementioned link to verify if your bugzilla is already in the
release notes (if it needs to be). each item in the release notes contains a
link to its original bug; as such, you can search through the release notes by
bug number.

Cheers,
Don
