Description David Lawrence 2001-01-24 00:17:14 UTC
When trying to start anaconda using either a Voodoo 3 or Voodoo 5 video
adaptor, it hangs with no error messages whatsoever. It is right after
mouse probing and before trying framebuffer. I have the cards at my desk if
anyone wants to revisit the problem with me.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-24 20:20:32 UTC
Please look at this asap.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-01-24 21:19:42 UTC
What if you use the 'nofb' option?

Comment 3 David Lawrence 2001-01-24 21:59:27 UTC
Running with the nofb option makes no difference. You can still switch to
different consoles and the last thing you see on VT2 is looking for USB mouse.

Comment 4 David Lawrence 2001-01-24 22:38:38 UTC
Okay. turns out to be a false alarm in a way. It ended up being a hardware
conflict of some kind. I was able to get the cards to work by disabling some
thing in the BIOS. Also the cards work in other motherboards I tested fine with
out modification.
