Description James Morris 2009-06-10 03:52:36 UTC
Description of problem:

I'm unable to get past one of the splash screens when upgrading an intel Macbook.  The cursor looks very strange and there are no navigation buttons.  It seems that the screen is at the wrong resolution.  I noticed some screen artifacts before this.  Currently upgrading with basic video driver with more success.

See the attached photo of the screen when things go wrong.

The cursor is the 3 black dots you can see on the right.

The lcd panel borders are roughly that of the photo (i.e. whatever is being displayed does not fill the display).

I've since run x.org configuration and got things running manually (it worked fine like that, just not during install).

The basic video install left a simple vesa config, but when I configured it manually, the result was per the attached config file.  I've also attached the latest Xorg log (there's only one other, which is also from since the system was configured correctly -- there does not seem to be a log from the installation phase).

This looks rather like 494390 (and 505536). can we get lspci -nn ? I bet dollars to donuts the PCI ID for the gfx card is 8086:27A2 .
