RFE: Install dies on machines i810 + 2nd video card
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:02 EDT
I like the fix you had for 7.2, but figured I should put in another type of
solution as a RFE for 8.0.
Dell Optiplex GX100
128 Mb Ram
Voodoo 3 3000 w/16Mb
Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10000
CDrom writer on SCSI chain
i810 video *always on*
3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX [Fast Etherlink]
The first problem is that the system seems to get confused with the initial
frame buffer mode and goes into an ultra lowres 320x200. The previous
workaround was to do a text install which of course dropped off functionality.
This time the install worked by doing a nofb as the installer tried the
VGA16 XFree86.. and I limped along in that (yeah)
I figured that since it saw I had two video cards.. would it be possible
for it to do something like this on an expert install:
Detected 2 video cards
Which card do you wish to be primary for install?
The framebuffer problem.. I dont know what to do with.. I dont know if it
is a Voodoo problem or an i810 voodoo conflict problem.
How does text mode drop off functionality? Its IDENTICAL to GUI mode now.
We do not support motherboards currently where the i810 cannot be disabled if
another card is present. You will have to manually configure X for the card in
use. We may reconsider for future releases.
BTW, what does kudzu say when you:
print kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_VIDEO, kudzu.BUS_UNSPEC, kudzu.PROBE_ALL)
I figured it would be several releases, which is why the RFE was put on it..
Here is what kudzu says
>>> print kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_VIDEO, kudzu.BUS_UNSPEC, kudzu.PROBE_ALL)

I'll try to pick this up for the next release.
