Description Larry Marrs 2005-07-05 20:29:28 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
X-windows does not not work at all by default on a Laptop Averatec brand - 3220.

FC2 and FC3 appeared to at least work and boot something in graphics mode on this laptop. Something changed in the X configuration so that graphics mode and X-windows does not work at all during the install process or in run level 5.

I had to install in text mode and boot into run level 3 to get the machine up.  These steps were not necessary for FC2 or FC3.

What changed in the monitor and video card probe between FC4 and FC3?

You havent indicated your video hardware or other hardware specifics.

This is probably a duplicate of bug #161242, so please review that bug
and test the workaround provided there.  If it turns out to be a different
issue, attach your X server log file and config file.

Thanks in advance.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-08-30 08:04:11 UTC
This bug contains insufficient information to be able to diagnose the
cause of the problem, and there hasn't been any response to my inquiry
to obtain additional information over a month ago.

As such, we are unable to troubleshoot this problem further.

If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest
version of Fedora Core, please file a bug report in the X.Org
bugzilla located at in the "xorg"

Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that
become available for consideration in future updates.

Closing NOTABUG.
