Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58868
TGA2 graphics is not recognized correctly
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:13 EDT
Description of Problem: TGA2 graphics-based machines cannot do GUI install
as the card is not correctly recognized. In addition, the install does not
fail-over to text mode, forcing the user to enter text mode manually.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): alpha-72-beta1
How Reproducible: Attempt to install via GUI on a TGA2-based machine.
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: VGA16 server is started, but the screen is unusable. One can
exit the X server via Ctrl-Alt-Del, but the install then terminates abnormally.
Expected Results: Normal installation via GUI.
Additional Information: Text mode install works fine. X servers work fine
under normal operation after correct setup after the install.
This system is outside the scope of the contract and will be marked CLOSED -
Fixed in final
No release not needed. Duplicate bug of 58866
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 58866 ***
Testing with the 0503.0 bits, this bug appears not to be fixed.
This bug is NOT really a duplicate of 58866; that one (TGA) fails because the
XF86Config-4 file is incomplete (needs a BusID). Installation on TGA does
go on successfully, as it fails-over correctly to text mode (I believe because
TGA does not identify itself as VGA-compatible in the PCI config info).
TGA-2 GUI install fails because it *does* identify itself as VGA-compatible,
leading anaconda to try the VGA-16 server, which works enough to trash the
screen and make it impossible to do anything but terminate the server, which
then (abnormally) terminates the install.
TGA gives a PCI CLASS of 0380, vendor/device IDs of 1011:0004.
TGA-2 gives PCI CLASS of 0300, vendor/device IDs of 1011:000d.
