Description of problem:
Install CD ignores xdriver setting, only using autodetection of graphics card. This means a graphical install can not be performed on a Dell PE850 as it has an XGI graphics card and the driver is not included.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from live cd, passing xdriver=vesa as a commandline option
/tmp/X.log shows it tries to load the xgi driver, fails and exits
Xorg should try to use the vesa driver instead
I noted that it created a file under /mnt/sysimage/etc/X11/xorg.conf to specify the driver, however Xorg doesn't appear to be using it. It is using the config directory /etc/xorg.conf.d
What release of anaconda is this? This should be fixed according to bug 577312.
I was using the F13 Beta Install CDs that were released yesterday.
The patch is present in our f13-branch, but we haven't built any new version since it was introduced because of the upcoming beta. It should get into the distribution's f13 version soon now that beta is out.
