Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55548
machine hang when testing video settings during installation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:58 EDT
Description of Problem:
During the video settings phase of the installation, when clicking on
the button to test the selected resolution and colors, and then
clicking yes to confirm that the settings are working, the video
becomes scrambled, the CD in the drive is ejected, and the machine
appears to hang (caps lock and num lock lights don't respond). Pressing
control-alt-delete still causes the machine to reboot however, so it
doesn't appear to be totally hung.
I tried this in RC2 and it worked fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run the installation
2. select 1024x768 resolution and 16bpp color
3. click the test settings button
4. click yes to confirm that X came up OK
The video will appear all scrambled, and the system will not respond
visibly to any input other than control-alt-delete.
Return to installation

Weird...Can you reproduce it in text mode?
Server or workstation machine?
Does it persist post-install?
I was unable to reproduce this problem in text mode.
This is a server machine. The problem seems to only occur in the installer - if
I proceed with installation without testing the settings, X works fine after
katzj, do we have any IA64's with Mach64's in them? I think all ours have
The only ones I've used have r128s... notting?
dell & cpq boxes.
... actually, I'm fairly sure most Lions have Mach64, not rage128.
The RC3 QA1129 release seems to have corrected this issue.
