Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 47139
RFE: Some units would be nice in the video ram selection screen
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:25 EDT
Text mode install of fairfax onto Sony Vaio PCG-SR1K which has
3M video RAM. Video card configuration:
Gets video card correct: NeoMagic 256 (laptop/notebook)
Gets video RAM wrong (still! But you closed bug 14998 last time
I complained about this :)) and thinks it has "256" video RAM.
Well, if the video card is called 256, this is the sort of thing
a user like me will accept, because clearly the 256 in the card
must mean... well. something :)
The list of options where you can choose what amount of video RAM you
really have is particularly confusing because there are no units!
It's terribly confusing for people who are not actually sure what
typical amounts are. Are they in kilobytes, megabytes, (bytes? :))
or what? Units would really help here.
Note, I'm bugzilla'ing this against Xconfigurator because I was told
to, even though this happened in a text mode install of fairfax, so
I don't see why it isn't anaconda. Feel free to reassign.
I agree, units is a nice enhancement idea. In text mode install, the
X configuration _is_ Xconfigurator, which is why you were told to file
against Xconfigurator. ;o) anaconda is the installer, but anaconda
only handles X configuration in GUI install mode.
Not sure if this is relevant still for our new config tool. I'm going
to reopen it, and reassign it to the new tool, and Alex can decide on
wether it is relevant still or not (mainly because Xconfigurator is
redhat-config-xfree86 has units already.
