Description of problem:
Anaconda crashes during X config of a Matrox Millenium G458. When choosing from
the list of resolutions if you pick the highest resolution anaconda just reboots
the computer when you click on the resolution and you can't change any other
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install 7.3 (i'm installing over ftp from the floppy disk image, but i don't
think that really matters)
2.go through the installation until you get to the xconfig at the end
3.click on the resolution dropdown menu and choose the highest resolution
Actual Results: system reboots before expected
Expected Results: the system should not reboot until you click the next button
I'm not familiar with the G458 - is this a new model?
I have a G400 I use w/o problems.
Sorry that was the G450 i couldn't read my writing.
I'll see if we have one around here to test with.
This issue has been fixed in internal CVS.
If you want to use a resolution higher than 1600x1200 you will need to first
choose that level in the installer, then when you reboot edit the
/etc/XF86Config-4 file and add the resolution.
