This is an anaconda issue, reassigning appropriately, but if I remember
correctly video testing is disabled on certain video cards including the Voodoo3
because they tend to lock up the machine on the video mode switch required for
testing the X configuration.

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-02-27 22:23:40 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-27 23:23:18 UTC
Voodoo 3 blacklisted because it does bad things when tested due to X server

Comment 4 Preston Brown 2001-02-27 23:42:11 UTC
but weren't we going to gray it out, not make it disappear?
