Description kantras 2010-04-14 14:33:20 UTC
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):


How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Boot from live cd, passing xdriver=vesa as a commandline option
Actual results:

/tmp/X.log shows it tries to load the xgi driver, fails and exits

Expected results:

Xorg should try to use the vesa driver instead

Additional info:

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.

Comment 2 kantras 2010-04-14 15:14:35 UTC
I was using the F13 Beta Install CDs that were released yesterday.

Comment 3 Martin Sivák 2010-04-14 15:17:26 UTC
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.
