sis driver used for sis 671
Last modified: 2009-11-07 16:46:04 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora 9 uses sis driver on sis 671
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert f9 live usb stick into sis 671 machine
sis driver starts, but fails
Sorry, the point here is that the vesa driver should have
been chosen, but the sis was instead - it then failed to start.
William, could we get generated /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.*.log from
the failed attempt with sis driver please attached to this bug as uncompressed
Created attachment 302995 [details]
log file from failed x attempt
There is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf created - should thee be?
That's OK, thanks.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Setting this bug to CLOSED WONTFIX. Fedora 9 is End Of Life and is no longer supported. This bug was not re-versioned beyond 9, so am assuming it is now OBE.
