Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 78114
monitor detection inconsistent
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:32:21 EDT
I've tried 3 installs on the same system (AOC Spectrum 7Glr + Matrox Millenium
G200) so far. Try one:
cold boot, graphical install, NFS -- anaconda detected monitor
warm boot, graphical install, NFS -- anaconda unable to detect monitor type
warm boot, text install, NFS -- anaconda unable to detect monitor type
Obviously, you shouldn't do warm boots.
What sort of machine do you have?
Heh. I'm not sure the cold boot is what makes it work -- it might be something
less obviously different. I'll play more tonight and see.
The machine itself is an AMD K7, probably VIA chipset.
Try number 4:
Cold boot, graphical install, NFS -- unable to detect
It's not a cold boot / warm boot issue
Try #1 on the same system with beta2. Cold boot, NFS graphical install, monitor
beta3 - it fails consistently
VC2 during install reports:
* ddcprobe returned bogus values:
Sorry -- that should, of course, have been VC3, not VC2.
If I manually run ddcprobe during install, I get:
Videocard DDC probe results
Description: Matrox MGA-G200
Memory (MB): 8
Monitor DDC probe results
Monitor DDC Probe failed.
new install of beta3 on this same machine worked. So, it's consistently
inconsistent in beta3 too ;-)
Apologies for the slow response. Please attempt to reproduce this problem on a
currently supported release, such as Fedora Core 4. If it does still happen,
please open a new issue.
