Description wilfred 2013-08-20 18:38:58 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing Fedora 18/19 on servers that have an on-motherboard Emulex Pilot3/Matrox G200e graphics controller, the display is scrambled and installation is not possible.

How reproducible:
Try to install the OS. Occurs every time.

Actual results: Scrambled display, even when you try to swap screens

Expected results: Normal display and able to complete install

Additional info:

The drivers are in X.ORG. This works fine with in-box drivers for RHEL and SLES.
