Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240620
Input Not Supported
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install fedora core 6
2. attempt to boot into fedora core 6
Actual results: A small dialog box saying INPUT NOT SUPPORTED
Expected results: to boot into FC6
Additional info:I am running an AMD 64, with an Nvida Geforce 79850 512mb PCI
express video card.( I think it has something to do with the video) I can't get
into Fedora enough to enter any information or terminal. I have installed
several times and always the same result. I do have the opportunity to enter an
update URL as I install but I have no information to input.
What language or input method did you select during install?
I installed in english. From the discs I got from OSDisc.com Fedora Core 6
64-bit platform. I got the install discs and source discs.
I don't see how you can possibly get input not supported if you're doing an
English install with a US keyboard layout. Can you capture a screenshot?
How do I capture a screenshot ? And do you want the box that says input not
supported or the screen just before that of fedora trying to load ? I assume the
fedora loading as far as it does.
A digital camera of some sort would be useful. I'm still not even clear
where/when you're getting this message, if it's during install, after, during
boot up, at the login window, after logged in, etc... And yes, it needs to be
from the box that is giving you the error, we need to see the error.

That would be your LCD saying that it can't handle the resolution that is
configured. You'll most likely need to reconfigure X here.
Hit ctrl-alt-f2 when that happens, scp /tmp/ramfs/X.log to another machine (or
USB thumb drive or whatever), and attach that file to this bug.
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
I got the newest fedora 7 and I don't have the issue with it. I don't want to
reinstall 6 to go back to the problems. Sorry
OK, thanks for letting us know.
