Description shane 2000-02-13 15:27:05 EST
Anaconda fails to install using default installation method with most Dell
Inspiron models (also resulting in X failing to work, even if you get it
installed via text mode).  A well layed out solution to this problem can be
found at:http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~steveh/inspiron/x_method1.html

This site provides a patch to ATI_MACH64 as well as a modified mode lines
(Xconfig) that should work with all Dell Inspiron LCD displays.

Thanks for your time.

p.s. hope this gets in before redhat 6.2 ships :)

We are not able to replicate this in the lab using 6.2 and a variety of Dell
laptops.  In addition, Dell has not heard of any problems, so I am closing out
this bug.
