Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 56683
chaning video card should be possible along with trying screen settings
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:25 EDT
Description of Problem: If I notice I did chose a not suitable video card,
it's too late to change
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 7.2
How Reproducible: run installer
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose a video card that is not obviously the right one; everything
works fine though
2. when coming to the point where screen settings are tried, it might
appear that it doesn't work that well on high resolutions
Actual Results: you can't try another video card
Expected Results: it should be possible to change video card at this
point, and then try again
If testing the video card fails, the test should fall back and let you pick a
new card. What kind of video card do you have and what selection did you pick?
Well, I really don't have a problem with this. But I did in Mandrake, only
there I had the ability to change. The difference could be only a matter of
choosing colour depth.
I'm trying to understand what the problem is that you are seeing. What behavior
is it that you'd like changed?
Well, it might be so that I tentatively choose a video card & settings, and it
all works fine in the installer. But then when you come to the point where you
should test the graphics, there might show up problems, even so that the screen
is not legible at all. It might just be a matter of switching from 24 bit to 16
bot colours. But then it's not possible to change the configuration. It should
be possible to change a 2nd time.
Hmmm, this works for me. When I test a resolution that the card or monitor
can't do (or if the resolution is too high or low), it should time out after 10
seconds and the video card selection screen should reappear. Even if the test
screen is illegible, it should disappear after ten seconds. Is this different
than the behavior that you are seeing?
Oh, I must have missed that out then. I thought it wasn't possible to change
video card at that stage. Closing this bug.
