Video settings lost after install.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:24 EDT
During CDROM-GUI-LAPTOP, CDROM-TUI-WORKSTATION, NFS-EVERYTHING-GUI,
X was set to 1024x768x16 during installation on my Dell Latitude CPx (ATI
Rage Mobility). When the install was finished, it booted up to 640x480x8.
Ran Xconfigurator manually, set for 1024x768x16, worked fine.

This was a known problem when beta 1 shipped. This has been fixed in cvs for a
few weeks now. Please try the latest trees and verify that this has been fixed.
Just tried this on qa0105.0 and tried it yesterday on qa0104.0. Got the same
results as I orginally got... 640x480x8 instead of 1024x768x16. Come by my desk
if you want to see this bug.

This is a problem with some video cards report video memory values that are not
exact. They should report memory in powers of 2. For example, this video card
has 8 megs, so it should report 8192kb, which is 2^13, or 128 * 64. Instead,
this card uses 127 * 64, which returns 8128 kb.
We'll have to check for this in the installer. Will fix immediately. Thanks
for catching this one.
I think this should be fixed now. I need a laptop with this graphics card to
test and make sure that this works.
This is fixed now. QA, please verify on Aaron's Dell laptop with this video
card. It works on my Compaq laptop at home with an identical video card.
