FC5 GUI Problem on Intel® Desktop Board D102GGC2


Hi ,
I have problem to install FC5 in graphics mode on Intel® Desktop Board D102GGC2 with ATI Radeon* Xpress 200 chipset. While instaling in graphics mode after monitor information it is not able to do instalation.blur is coming on to the screen. Then i installed in test mode. FC5 got installed on my pC but iam not able to get GUI. Even i do startx i got only blurred screen.

Please any body can give what to do.

Thanks
Sridhar

You need to add "vga=788" to the kernel boot options for both installation and normal bootup to work. The problem is that most distro's are defaulting to a mode that is not supported by that video implementation. You will probably need to download the drivers from ATI to get full 3D support (not sure what the state of the open source drivers are, but I know FC5 won't work out of the box).

You will also need to download the latest stable alsa drivers from alsa-project.org. Anything after alsa-1.0.12 will work.

Ive just had the same problem with a toshiba laptop and FC5

i installed by running linux text at the boot cd prompt

when os installed you should be greeted with just a shell, do a full yum upgrade, the install the linva repository rpm

rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm

then

yum install xorg-x11-drv-fglrx

then type

startx

you may want to then change your /etc/inittab to give a default run level of 5 afterwards to stop having to manually starting x on ervery boot
