Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453812
xserver autoconf doesn't care about xgi
Last modified: 2018-04-11 06:48:22 EDT
My awesome XGI Volari Z7 video chip is not autodetected, and I end up with vesa.
PCI id is 18ca:0020; see below for more info.

New driver is "vesa"

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf), X server log file
(/var/log/Xorg.*.log), and /var/log/anaconda.xlog to the bug report as
individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
As mentioned in the bug report - this is with *autoconfiguration* in X. So
there's no xorg.conf. And I included the relevant section of Xorg.0.log already.
Will, et tu, Brute? Could we get whole /var/log/Xorg.*.log, please?

E.g., that zillion of lines "Failed to find device matching" is actually quite
Updating summary so I have some idea what's going on.
The "Failed to find device" thing should be gone now, at least.

X.log from anaconda on a sis-chipset machine
Nope - the "Failed to find device" thing persists in current rawhide.
This Xorg.0.log is from anaconda, during a rawhide install.
Alright you. Try xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.5.1-9.fc10 and let me know how it goes.
Works like a charm. No more "Failed to find device" messages in the log, either.
