Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 746879
Anaconda handles multiple displays poorly
Last modified: 2011-10-18 04:12:34 EDT
Description of problem:
With two LCD panels plugged into my nvidia card, anaconda used both displays but restricted the UI window to one. The window seemed to be larger than the physical display, making the buttons to continue inaccessible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Insert install DVD into a multi-head system and boot.
Configuration menus are too large to be fully viewed and interacted with
Anaconda sizes windows properly, or if dependencies are too bloated, anaconda defaults to using only one screen.
Unplugging one of the displays and starting over made it work fine.

Whoops, lcpci posted for hardware reference, I didn't check to see if nouveau was in use during the install, but I can if needed.
