Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447064
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:42:19 EST
Description of problem:
I made a logical partition to my hard disk. 10gb is the size. I also formatted
it to ext3. I used a graphical method installation. Fresh DVD i386. I also
checked my DVD using the dvd test at the first part of installation. It passed
then I followed the following instructions.
Upon installation the first "graphical" window that appeared was cut at the
bottom which is the language selection. I also noticed that the resolution is
too big meaning the font size is big and the pictures too. I can't even see the
buttons of all installation windows. What I did is I pressed Alt-N to manually
click next for each window till I successfully installed everything. What's
wrong for me is the resolution. It is still BIG. I tried changing the resolution
setting but the selection list are only two. one is 600x800 and the other one I
forgot but it's close to 600x800. I also noticed upon startup or shutting down
at a text-mode screen I always see Fedora i686 not i386. What I downloaded and
installed is i386 not i686. I don't know what happened but I think it installed
i686. No error messages. Just the resolution which is wrong. It looks like what
I installed is not compatible to my hardware.
Here's my hardware specs:
check this site.
hard disk: ST380215A
DVD drive: liteon 20x super all write
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 9.
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional hardware specs.
Processor: Pentium 4, 2.66 ghz
Memory: 256 ddr

This does not seem to have anything to do with the zzuf package
(http://libcaca.zoy.org/wiki/zzuf), reassigning to distribution.
