When I try the FC5 test3 installation on another

Driver problem in FC5 ?

I did not expect any problems upgrading a computer with an 865G card. Thanks for bringing the problem to attention. I kind of wish the problem was discovered earlier. I however did not test on the computer with the 865G video expecting that having it work with the 815 would transfer over to the 865G card which seems a bit more sturdy of a card.

- Boot into runlevel 3 as root
- Make sure xorg-x11-drv-i810 is installed
- Check that "i810" is listed as the driver used in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

If it fails, try running system-config-display. See if the video and monitor is setup correctly. Use a your preferred resolution setting from the menus. Exit s-c-display and change to another terminal. In the second terminal, login as a normal user. Run startx with the settings that you selected. If it fails run s-c-display again with lousier resolution settings. Switch back the regular user terminal and try again.

You should file a bug report against xorg-x11-drv-i810 in bugzilla with the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file as an attachment and your /etc/X11/xorg.conf as an attachment.

I had a similar problem with an S3 graphic video and had to settle for 800x600 resolution to have X working. You might be able to use that resolution on the 865G video but it works with 1280x1024 at 24 depth and runs 3D applications fair.

I hope this problem is fixed soon.


<mao> why do they insist on ading -Werror...
<Misty-chan> Mesa would not compile out of the box if it were done by you
             guys ;)
<knghtbrd> Uh, Mesa DOESN'T compile out of the box most of the time
