Description of problem:
I have a LG L1710S LCD Monitor. Anaconda detects it correctly but when 
starting the X server the monitor goes blank with "out of sync", seconds later 
the X server dies and Anaconda displays that he cant write to the display.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put in CD and start computer
2. wait for anaconda to detect and start X
3. see output

Actual Results:  error out with "can't write to DISPLAY:1"

Expected Results:  X server with Anaconda in graphical mode

Additional info:

Anaconda detects the graphic card correctly (Intel 82845G [sees at i810 I 
think]). Problem is, X sync is set too high for the Monitor type, or set too

Please try booting with the options:

linux resolution=800x600

and let me know if that helps.

Comment 2 Clemens Schwaighofer 2003-02-15 03:06:08 UTC
I can't confirm that yet, but I tried Phoebe RedHat Beta and the installer
starts fine without any problems.

Comment 3 Clemens Schwaighofer 2003-02-15 03:34:08 UTC
I tried to boot with this option, but I still have no output.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-02-27 21:20:38 UTC
Are you saying the installaer came up fine w/o the 800x600 option?

I have the same problem running the red hat 9.0 setup. The 
command "linux lowres" fix that, but when it finish the installation 
of packages I have to configure the video. The anaconda detected 
that I have "S3 Pro Savage KM166" but I have a "S3 Pro Savage DDR" I 
let the driver that the anaconda detected and the settings of 
resolution. Then when I clicked finish, and the system reboot and 
finish up loading everything, during the startx the monitor came out 
black with the message "Sync. out of range".

I ran the red hat 9.0 setup again but a chose "S3 Savage (Generic)". 
Then I reboot the system and there was the same problem "Sync. out 
of range".

I try for last with the same driver "S3 Savage (Generic)" but I 
change the resolution to 640x480 and the color depth to 256 colors
(8bits). This solve the problem and finally I can see the GUI. The I 
try to change the resolution to 800x600 and I had the same problem 
Sync. out of range". I have tested too many times and always happens 
the same thing.

Sorry for my bad english
