Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51007
Video chipset not correctly detected.

OS: RedHat 7.1 2.96-94 (beta 3) Roswell
Boot controller: ROC
During installation the video configuration defaults to ATI Rage. After
selecting the ATI Rage XL the video memory amount remains at 1MB. The
customer then has to change the video RAM to 8MB.
The chipset and amount of video RAM needs to be documented, also.
Please send 'lspci', 'lspci -n', and 'ddcprobe' output for this card.
Memory detection on video cards is notoriously poor.
Here's the lspci output for the video controller. I do not have a ddcprobe
command on the system.
00:06.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage XL (rev 27)
00:06.0 Class 0300: 1002:4752 (rev 27)
DDC probing on IA64 doesn't work as is, and is quite non-trivial to fix. If
this is a mis-identified BOARD, then this is a MUST-FIX... if it's not detecting
the memory available, then it's a would-be-nice-someday thing.
No, it detects the controller as ATI Rage 128.
memory detection on ia64 isn't implemented, and won't be at this time.
