Description Wendy Hung 2002-02-22 18:06:23 EST
Description of problem:
When installing on IBM xSeries 342, choosing to use framebuffer mode causes the 
wrong "vga=" parameter is written in grub.conf.  Specified 800x600 at 16 bit 
color, which should produce "vga=788" (0x314, VESA mode for 800x600,
16 bit). Instead, "vga=787" is written (0x313, VESA 800x600, 15 bit color).

When booting, it is indicated that this mode is invalid and an opportunity to 
pick a different mode is provided. 

Also confirmed on x220. Maybe an issue with Savage4's?

Nope, I just can't read straight across the line and used the wrong line when
putting the modes in.  Fixed in CVS
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2002-03-07 11:58:08 EST
Deferring this as a result of the installer regression.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-04-26 17:24:43 EDT
Putting back into modified as we move back toward this code.
