Using video card 3D image 974 same result (a mess).  During boot sequence
switches to a white screen with no access to mouse or keyboard.

Could only use text install, gui install froze with white screen.

Johan:  Does bug #153729 adequately describe your problem?

Comment 3 Johan Laagland 2005-07-04 18:18:24 UTC
Mike, I have read the thread and recognize the input others gave. Upon FC4
release the bug was still precent. The only way to have FC4 installed was a text
installation and reboot into runlevel 3. The way I managed to have a graphical
screen was installed the latest FC3 x11-xorg files.
