Description Mufit Eribol 2005-05-18 19:12:28 UTC
Description of problem: During a fresh install, x server starts with a mouse cursor, white background and nothing else. Install process can not go on. How reproducible: Always (same problem also with fc4test1 and fc4test2) Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use Geforce 6200 video card 2. Boot from first disk of fc4test3 for installation Actual results: X starts only with white background with mouse cursor. Expected results: X should start with the relevant windows, buttons etc necessary for further installation selections. Additional info: Anaconda recognises video card as Geforce 6200

This appears to be a duplicate of bug #157715, only it is reported on x86_64. They could be different issues, but it could be the same issue on multiple architectures too. It is assumed that this is a video driver bug of some sort, and that it is probably not specific to install time. Please do a text mode installation, and then configure X afterwards for the following tests: Run: system-config-display --reconfig Then: Test X and confirm wether the problem occurs or not. If so, can you try adding the following to the driver section of your xorg.conf: Option "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps" Restart the server and see if the problem still remains. If it doesn't prevent the issue, comment that option out and try the following option instead: Option "XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy" Again restart and test. If the problem still occurs, try putting both of these options in there and testing again. Indicate if that solves the problem. If none of these tests solve the problem, try using Option "noaccel". Which of the above work around the problem if any? Please attach your X server config file and a log file from one of the runs, as individual uncompressed file attachments using the link below.

system-config-display --reconfig => gave black screen with mouse cursor. Hard reset to get out. "startx" resulted in blue screen with mouse cursor. Hard reset was the only way to get out. In "Device" section of xorg.conf Option "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps" => Some startup Gnome icons came up but nothing else other than mouse cursor. Again hard reset to get out. Option "XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy" => X started as expected. Please find attached xorg.conf and log files for your information. If you need any further try please let me know.

Thanks for the config and logs. This confirms a problem reported by another user as well. I think we'll probably use "XaaNoScreenToScreenCopy" by default for these chips for FC4, as it's been confirmed to work around the bug. Hopefully, the "nv" driver maintainer can resolve the driver bug in a future update as well. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 157715 ***
