The same for RS485 (xpress1100) as in bug 461545
Comment 2 Russell Doty 2008-10-07 16:49:14 EDT
I was able to install by adding nomodeset to the grub command line, and then by adding nomodeset to grub.conf.
Comment 3 Samuel Sieb 2008-10-12 18:55:30 EDT
I was just about to file this one.  I found that using "noprobe" got me to the install screen.  I was testing for a different bug, so I didn't actually try installing.
Comment 4 Samuel Sieb 2008-10-12 18:57:15 EDT
I just noticed that this was filed under x86_64.  I was using the i386 version.
Comment 5 Joachim Deguara 2008-10-15 14:24:15 EDT
Russ, were you able to install and have X running or did you have to resort to text mode only?
Comment 6 Russell Doty 2008-10-15 14:37:41 EDT
I was able to use the graphical installer and have X running by adding "nomodeset" to the grub configuration line.
Comment 7 Steve 2008-10-20 09:51:47 EDT
I tried to install Fedora 10 Snapshot 2 today. There is no way to use the graphical installer. In Fedora 10 Beta, i was able to use the graphical installer by typing # linux resolition=1650x1050. I have an ATI Radeon HD 3850 AGP, which have an R670-Chip. 
Is there maybe a connection to the following bug and the bad ati driver?:
