Graphics Card NOT working !!!!!!!!! Worked in FC5 !!!
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
No graphics !!! The monitor goes to stand-by (shut down) after starting udev !!!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot your pc to linux.
2.Wait for the kernel to load.
3.Monitor will go to stand-by (turn-off) after udev starts.
This Happens after fresh istall !!!
The monitor must work. It worked in FC5.
Running Fedora Core 6 Zod kernel 2.6.18 XEN.
Video card: S3 Savage4 KM133
NIC: VIA 6102
Processor: Athlon XP 1700+
RAM: 354 MB
HDD: 40 GB Maxtor
This a actually a problem in the anaconda installer !!!
It has installed another version of the kernel. I actully have an i686 machine,
but the xen kernel is not working.
The X server doesn't seem to be starting, thus the monitor goes to stand-by.
To fix this you need to install a proper kernel for your machine. Download the
proper kernel from fedora repository and install it. If you have a permanent
internet connection (read NOT adsl or x-adsl) you can very easily do this in
rescue mode, just remember to run command "chroot /mnt/sysimage" BEFORE
installing kernel. To install the kernel run "rpm -ivh
your-kernel-neme-here.rpm". After install reebot and it should apear in the boot
