Last modified: 2016-04-18 05:47:09 EDT
Description of problem:
SIS driver on my Fujitsu-Siemens Esprimo desktop "baloney slices" the video.
Switching to the VESA driver clears up the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install RHEL5.2 x86_64 with default video settings
Steps to Reproduce:
screen has vertical lines of display displaced across screen
Happens on x86_64 platform but suspect platform independent.
Original system had 512MB RAM with video stealing. Upgraded to 1GB but problem persists. Running xen kernel.
