Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51124
traceback setting up X configuration screen
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:33 EDT
Description of Problem:
Roswell died on nofb install immediately after boot disk creation.
System detected the on-mobo i810 chipset, failed to detect Voodoo3 video card.
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 26673 [details]
Anaconda floppy dump
We (Red Hat) really need to fix this defect before next release.
Brent please reproduce.
If you remove the Voodoo, does the installer work properly? We don't officially
support systems with more than one video card. Some bioses apparently can't
tell which one to use, so the system gets confused.
Removed Voodoo3 video, did fresh, complete install.
Syslinux default install- no pengiun (framebuffer) was shown but the
install went perfectly.
After install, I shut it down and put the Voodoo3 back in. Kudzu
worked perfectly detecting the new video card and reconfiguring X.
The system is a Dell OptiPlex GX110 with 384MB ram/Voodoo3 video.
Weird. I can't explain why kudzu would work properly after reboot but not
during the install. Bill, any ideas here?
No, but I don't see kudzu in the traceback.
I have an OptiPlex GX110, but I can't get it to recognize any video card other
than the i810.
I fixed the problem causing the traceback.
