Description wmonette 2000-01-13 01:15:46 UTC
When installing RedHat 6.1 on my Digital Celebris 590 system my video
system was not properly detected and no option offered for manual entry of
the chipset info.  Final result was a text mode only installation and no
driver for the S3 864 chipset. SuperProbe from the command line does
properly detect the the video system, and, after a deeper look at Linux
software installation than I intended, I have a working X window system.

This issue is resolved in the latest beta installer.
