F7 vesa +ati x1400 fix!

Alright I got it working again with the old vesa package.....

Fresh install of F7 live cd fails.

Once, X bails 6 times or more and you can login with root (no passwd):

# init 3

Add a mode line of 800x600 to xorg.conf

# vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes     "800x600"

# init 5

Get a terminal

# yum install wget
# wget http://koji.fedoraproject.org/packages/xorg-x11-drv-vesa/1.3.0/5.fc7/i386/xorg-x11-drv-vesa-1.3.0-5.fc7.i386.rpm

# rpm -Uvh --oldpackage xorg-x11-drv-vesa-1.3.0-5.fc7.i386.rpm


What was the reason for adding the sync range hack?

- Re-add the sync range hack. (#235066)

* Tue Mar 20 2007 Adam Jackson < ajax redhat com> 1.3.0-5
- vesa-1.3.0-mode-heuristics.patch: If strict intersection of VBE and EDID
modes leaves no modes remaining after validation, try again with just
range and VBE checks. Replaces earlier range-hack and validmode patches.
