I have a SIS chipset on a Shuttle box - similar thing would happen after it would error saying PCI not supported.

Try adding this as a parameter on isntall:

I used "linux text nofb"
nofb stands for no frame buffer from what I read.
with this FC4 installed successfully but I'm still trying to figure out the correct video setup... the screen isn't displaying properly. seems to me on FC2 and FC3 I ended up having to use a frame buffer to get my video displaying properly... go figure.


add the kernel parameter vga=792 if you're having trouble with your a21p display on fedora

I just installed Slackware 10.1 on my shuttle tonight and it came with the latest sis drivers - although Xwindows wouldn't start until I edited my xorg.conf file and said that the video driver was "sis".
