Last modified: 2008-02-18 11:14:54 EST
Description of problem:
X won't start when using the vesa driver; I need to use the fbdev driver. The
vesa driver worked fine in FC6.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use vesa driver
X does not start
X starts normally
attached file contains copies of

xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log
Steven, could you try to restart Xorg without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever?
What happens? COuld you attach /var/log/Xorg.*.log from this excercise, please?

Xorg log file from running X with no xorg.conf
the via driver has never worked for me; I've always used the vesa driver
Do you happen to have an X log from using the vesa driver in FC6?
The log file for running with the vesa driver shows no modes coming back from
the BIOS; I'm curious to know why that would have worked in FC6 but not now.
No word in nine months, closing.
I suspect this is due to x86emu triggering different behaviour than vm86 though.
