Description of problem:
The Xserver is set to start on boot. When the Xserver starts, the computer
locks up and the screen is just a big jumble of colors. I am using a ATI
Radeon 7200 PCI version. But, when I install it only probes the Intel 810
chipset which is disabled in my BIOS, so I go through the list and choose my
Radeon. I've installed it over and over again and it repeatedly does the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on computer
2. The last line on the screen is "Running firstboot:"
3. Freeze up, and jumble of colors.
Actual Results: Lock up, not even the caps lock light on the keyboard will
come when the button is pressed.
Expected Results: The computer should start up and show me a login screen.
I did try the interactive start up once and hit NO for everything, and it said
that the Xserver failed to load. And said that there was a fatal error loading
Please attach your X server log file /var/log/XFree86.0.log, and your
X config file, as well as your /var/log/messages from after a crash.
Also attach the output of the following commands:
Created attachment 83784 [details]
Created attachment 83785 [details]
Created attachment 83786 [details]
output from command lspci -vn
Created attachment 83787 [details]
output from command uname -a
The log file you attached contains garbage. Please attach a new one.
Note that if you disable onboard video and have a problem, or if your machine
does not allow you to disable onboard video, then it is a broken hardware
issue. It may be able to be worked around somehow at somepoint in software
but it would not be considered a bug, but rather a "fix my broken hardware
with a software workaround" enhancement request.
Anyway, please attach the file so we can investigate.
Please respond if this issue is still present, and you are still interested
in the issue being tracked and resolved.
Closing bug due to insufficient information, and over a year of
inactivity. If this problem still persists in Fedora Core 2 test2
or later, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, feel free to file a new
bug report and attach all of the information requested above in
individual uncompressed file attachments, and confirm they're
not corrupted upon upload.
Closing as 'NOTABUG'.
