ML330 - test video setting - hangs

Video test hangs during install.

Steps to duplicate issue:

1.  Choose Custom System > Disk Druid
2.  Create /boot, swap and / 
3.  Accept default video chipset:  ATIMach64 and Compaq S700 monitor.
4.  Choose 16 bit, 1024x768 resolution.
5.  Click Test setting.
6.  Click yes on test screen  >> server hang.
7.  Repeat step 1 - 6 using Redhat 7.0 and does not have any problem.

Same test sequence passed on a DL360.

Tested on 3 separate ML330 servers:
2 ML330 servers failed.
1 ML330 server passed.

When using RH70, all 3 ML330 servers pass under the same test.

Duplicatable: Yes.

Do all three ML330s have identical hardware?

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-02-08 18:33:36 UTC
I've reproduced this problem on our ML330 here.  I'm looking into it.

From looking at some other bugs, I think that there is a problem with Mach64
video cards.  I don't think that this problem is limited to the ML330.  Does the
DL360 have an ATI Mach 64?

Yes, it has the ATI Mach 64, thanks.

Comment 9 Brent Fox 2001-02-15 01:09:58 UTC
We have eliminated the problem of the machine locking up.  However, even
stranger behavior is going on now.  When testing the X settings, the installer
can fall into a loop.  If you click 'Yes' in the Xtest program, frequently the
Xtest program will exit and then start back up again.  This happens over and
over.  Saying 'No' breaks the loop.  I tested with Red Hat Linux 7 and it
demonstrated the same behavior.

Our ML330 is now working perfectly with the latest internal tree.  Making bug as
