Description Alexandre Oliva 2002-12-22 09:42:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: I told the installer that the video card of my laptop is NVidia GeForce2, even though it's a 2Go, because the option for the 2Go was missing. Still, GeForce2 is supposed to use the `nv´ driver, but anaconda generated a XF86Config file that used the vesa driver, that didn't support the resolution I had chosen. I don't think it should override the user's choice. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install on a laptop with a NVidia GeForce2 Go card 2.Choose NVidia GeForce2 as the video card Actual Results: XF86Config uses the VESA driver. Expected Results: It should use the nv driver, that is the correct driver for the video card I specified, and I know it works on GeForce2 Go now. If r-c-xfree86 uses the nv driver when told to use it, why shouldn't anaconda? Additional info: It would be nice to have the option of GeForce2 Go in the installer, ideally auto-detected, and it can default to the nv driver now, since it actually works.

Back to anaconda and mike... although this is in rhpl, it'll be tracked better as anaconda

Confirmed fixed in phoebe2. The spelling is a bit odd, since it's nVidia instead of NVIDIA like all others, but detection works and the setting is obeyed.
