Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 477518
Lenovo PC 10012 - w/ Intel G33 graphics fails to display
Last modified: 2008-12-22 22:34:41 EST
So I went out and bought a new box today. Attempting to be as Intel generic as possible.
Machine Type: 10012
Product Family: 3000 H210
3 G mem
To get the ball rolling, Spot created a USB stick for me of F10. This works fine in my laptop. On the new PC, upon booting off the stick, first I see the fedora background fine, then it goes away and nothing ever appears on the display. If I go to alt consoles I can login as root there, but when switching back to graphics still nothing.
From the boot messages:
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 @2.2G
Linux agpgart interface v0.103
aggart-intel 0000:00:00.0 Intel G33 Chipset
"" detected 7164k stolen memory
"" AGP apperture is 256M@ 0xd000000

This works now on stock F10. Apparently the cause of the problem was the monitor. It apparently was lying about what video modes it supports. If I use a newer monitor it works fine.
That's really bizarre, Tim. If you get a chance to connect the older monitor,
