Re: FC 3 Display Problems

Dear Michael:
 I went through the same problem today on an Intel motherboard with the same 
i810 CGC. If you look back in the list about four hours, or google "i810 
video driver is broken", there is help..

 Basically, the FC1 and FC2 installs work just fine with the i810. 
Unfortunately, the FC3 dunt. It turns out to be an issue with video refresh 
which shows up as (variously):

a blank screen
a screen with cute vertical stripes
character salad

This depends on some cute timing issues.

But,...There is a work around...

One can put:

Option "NoAccel" 

into the Device section of the xorg.conf file. One can also download a later 
version of the xorg-x11 rpm. I personally went for the Option statement for 
now and it worked fine in 1600x1200/16 mode.

You might try that and see how it works for you.
