anaconda.xlog from the installation
Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.
This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.
I just tested 6.93 on the same computer. Graphical install does not start.
anaconda.log and X.log is attached.

I could swear I've fixed this like five times by now...
Actually, think I see the problem. Should be fixed in xorg-x11-drv-vesa 1.3.0-6.

Xorg.0.log of installed F7 on a Z61M with an ATI Radeon X1400
reopened the bug because Florian Sievert doesn't seem to have the (bugzilla)
rights to do so. See comment #9.
Closing again -- we are talking here about ATI X1600. For ATI X 1400 we have bug
Damn, line wrapping -- I mean bug 241491
