Description Marco Polo 2013-08-01 02:18:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Want to install F19 on a Dell Dimension 2400. Celeron 2.4 ghz processor.

The hard drive has 4 partitions: 1 & 3 are hidden, 2 is Win-XP, 4 is unallocated.  Due to file corruption I can no longer boot XP; disk is ok as it passes a surface test. My plan is to blow away everything on it and make this a Fedora standalone machine. (I have a Win-7 machine also.)

Using a Proview flat screen monitor.

Install media (Fedora-19-i386-netinst) on CD checks ok (both sha256sum and installer's test).

Using either start with check or without, the graphical display is garbage. Sweeping the mouse causes some white space to appear, but nothing readable or usable.

Tried basic graphic mode, which gave the language selection screen ok. The next screen was Localization which displayed incorrectly. Moving pointer around found un-displayed time zone drop box. Selected default New York. There was no way to proceed to next screen.

Can't give you any log files as it necer gets far enough to write them any where.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F19's graphical install process.

How reproducible:
Just did the boot from the CD as instructed.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

The monitor is connected via a standard serial port. Graphics are board-based.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:13:05 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 11:29:46 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
