From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)
Description of problem:
After selecting (no) clock, the install hangs with a blank screen. Only
responded to reset button (ctrl-alt-backspace had no effect).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Select monitor (several physical monitors/settings tried)
Actual Results: Screen goes blank (actually, horizontal traces are barely
visible- widely spaced. System unresponsive and dormant > 20 minutes.
Expected Results: X Windows view
Physical setup worked with RedHat 7.1
SiS 630 chipset
Several physical monitors tried, and many monitor selection options,
memory sizes, and screen sizes
After reset, startx fails with "Can't find default font" - there are
missing font directories.
Dave do we have a sis card test?
Not an Sis 630. I am still looking for one. We have an Sis 6326 which is not the
same thing I am told.
Target system described at URL <http://www.ecs.com.tw/products/bookpc2.htm>.
Spec'd at <http://www.ecs.com.tw/products/bookpc2-spec.htm>.
If you install the system and run Xconfigurator and try testing the
configuration there, does it work?
Xconfigurator runs without incident. However, startx subsequently fails
with "cannot open default font 'fixed'".
It sounds like the issue with xfs and XFree86 3.x.x servers which has been fixed
since the roswell release.
