Can you attach the generated /etc/X11/XF86config as well as /var/log/XFree86.0.log?
Comment 2 Daniel Resare 2003-01-15 22:38:32 UTC
I'm sorry, i blew that installation some days ago. The second time around I didnt experience the problem.
Comment 3 Daniel Resare 2003-01-15 22:40:11 UTC
Did I change that to ASSIGNED? Silly me.

I'm having a similar problem with Phoebe .93... During text based install off CD's i select that I want to use the vesa driver for my display(because the savage driver doesn't work very well and is autoprobed for my savage card(oddly enough :p) Anyways, after the install, when i reboot - savage is still what has been put into my /etc/X11/XF86Config file and as a result of that, X does not come up properly on my system! (the driver problem has been reported elsewhere, this is strictly for the manual changes not being stored in the configuration file)

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified for some period of time. I believe that most of these issues have been fixed, so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide. If the bug you are seeing still exists, please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
