Red Hat 7.1 Linux Beta - beta3
Feb 7, 2001
Failing HW: ML330
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.
Compaq Bug #: 194180
Compaq consideres this defect a MUST-FIX for Florence.
Do all three ML330s have identical hardware?
I've reproduced this problem on our ML330 here. I'm looking into it.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
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?
*** Bug 22763 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Yes, it has the ATI Mach 64, thanks.
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
