Description of problem:
During installation all sorts of display adapters are displayed in a list.
The vmware display driver is not present in this list, making it impossible to
correctly configure X during setup (running in vmware).
Please add the vmware display driver to the list of supported display drivers so
we can choose it during installation.
Also, if possible please add auto-detection for this adapter.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot installation from CD (within VMware)
2. continue to X configuration
3. look at driver list
Actual Results: vmware display is not present in the list
Expected Results: vmware display to be present in the list
What are the PCI ID's of the VMWare display device?
You should be able to find it using lspci -v and lspci -n.
I think this is it:
00:0f.0 Class 0300: 15ad:0405
00:0f.0 VGA compatible controller: VMWare Inc: Unknown device 0405 (prog-if 00

Memory at fb000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]

Is this enough information?
Reassigning to XFree86 component.
