Description drasi 1999-12-04 05:19:05 UTC
I have a STB Velocity 128 Video card and a Gateway 2000 EV700 monitor.
Both are compatible with almost all linux systems.

My key selling point for RedHat 6.1 was for the GUI Installer, however
whenever I run the GUI installer, it will not work for me.  My monitor
will go to a solid yellow color, which means that the screen went out of
range. I can go to any console session but cannot do session 7.  It
appears the generic SVGA used by the installer is out of range.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-01-14 17:37:59 UTC
the next version of the installer is going to be more conservative in
determining monitor timing information, which should fix this problem.
