Description of problem:
I installed Red Hat 7.3 in a IBM Netfinity 5000 server and during the
installation the installer was able to configure the card, but after the reboot,
the Xwindow fail to start. With 7,2 this not happen. I decided install 7.2 and
upgrade to 7.3 without upgrade Xfree packages. Everything goes fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Red Hat 7.3
2.Run Xconfigurator or from setup command
3.Display: Dell E771P
Since I do not have this hardware, I'll need you to help troubleshoot the
issue by trying a few things and reporting back wether or not it fixes
the problem. To do that, you'll have to upgrade X to the 7.3 version
Are you willing to perform the update and troubleshoot?
Sure. But today it's impossible to send feedback. Is hollyday in Portugal and we
are closed. My apoloziges. I will install 7.3 again tomorow. I think that Xfree
logs will be usefull, but it's suspicious about how hwdata(?) package provide
card information. Cheers.
Greetings. Fresh instalation done. What you needed?

Ops, i forgot to mention. I saw the thread for report nbr #65649. I guess that
you pretend the same files. Sending them...
Should this bug be linked to 64544 (or the other way around)?
Reading the thread for 64544 seems that both problems are the same.
s3trio should work in rawhide, once the new hwdata package gets pushed out.
For older releases of Red Hat Linux, the recommended workaround is to
reconfigure X to use the "vesa" driver.
Closing as RAWHIDE
