From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
Redhat 8.0 can only set the card to work at 16 depth and 1078x768 resolution 
and loads the vesa driver not the nv driver.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install redhat 8.0
2.try selecting video resolutions other than 1078x768

Actual Results:  The maximum resolution is 1078x768 16 depth. I had to load 
the nvidia driver to get the true potential of the card.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-08 11:21:14 UTC
This isn't a bug, GeForce 4 is not supported by XFree86 4.2.x, and so
is not supported by Red Hat Linux 8.0.  XFree86 4.3.0 will support
this card when it comes out in late January however.
