Description Sam Varshavchik 2000-12-23 16:28:57 EST
GUI install.

The board is a Voodoo 3 3500 AGP, 16MB RAM.

The monitor's frequencies are 30-66khz and 50-100hz.

Three-button PS2 mouse.

The installer correctly identifies the board, and the amount of RAM.  I
choose my preferred setting of 24bps, and 1280x1024 resolution.

The installer allows this configuration, but "Test X Configuration" comes
up in 24bps 800x600.  Worse, when the test screen is closed, and anaconda

I also saw this.

Also with a Voodoo3 (but a 2000 PCI) and a 3 button PS/2 mouse.
By "fixed in CVS" do you mean you fixed the lockup, or worked around it by
disabling the testing
of voodoo cards?
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-01-03 11:18:30 EST
I disabled testing of Voodoo and i810 video cards, as it was in 7.0.
Comment 5 Chris Evans 2001-01-03 11:21:04 EST
Are the XFree developers aware of the bug? In fact, perhaps the bug
is fixed in the XFree4.0.2 release?
