I take it this is firstboot where you are having the problem. The installer seemed to work fine regarding the installer. I did not make it through the upgrade process to try firstboot. I did notice an error in one of the logs regarding the i910 kernel module and a DRM error.

Attached text.



When I install FC4 on the same machine everything is
OK
lspci
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation
82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

When I try the FC5 test3 installation on another
machine (with Intel 915) it works fine.

Driver problem in FC5 ?


I am uncertain if the i910 module should be used for the 865G video. I assume that when the numbers go up, the card is a later addition. The i810 kernel module being used is what I thought was supposed to be used.
