Fedora Installation :: FC14 Installer Not Driving Video Card?

Aug 14, 2011

I am about to upgrade my wife's PC from FC12 to FC14. The DVD boots OK and the disk check passes OK. The installer get to the point that it says 'Running Anaconda' (or words to that effect), then the screen is cleared, a brief flash of garbled graphics appears at the top of the screen, then all goes blank.

If I select the option to install using a basic video driver, I get the expected installation screens appearing centred but scaled down within the display, as though the image was a 640x480 window in, say, a 1024x768 display (those figures are guesses, but give the right idea).

I can install this way, but first want to check that this will not leave me with a scaled-down display when I boot to FC14. In other words, will FC14 recognise my (elderly) video card correctly, even though the installer does not?

The machine is running fine under FC12 and I did not strike this problem when I upgraded it to that version.

I have tried the upgrade using two different DVD images, in case one had a fault that the disk check did not pick up.

Fedora Installation :: Installing On A SDHC Card - Installer Appears To Want To Install To Both SD Card And Also USB Stick

Jul 21, 2010

I have an EeePC 4g netbook which only has a 4Gb hard drive and I thought I would like to install Fedora 13 on an 8 Gb SDHC card and use it to boot the netbook.

As neither the netbook nor I have an optical drive, I made a bootable USB memory stick using Unetbootin which boots the netbook and could be used like a live CD to install Fedora.

On booting with the live USB stick, with the blank SD card in place, and clicking on the install icon, the installation starts but then there are 2 problems; the first is that the installer appears to want to install to both the SD card and also the USB stick. There is a tick in the box beside the USB stick which I can't remove.

I decided to ignore that and put a tick in the box beside the SD card but when it got to the point where it creates partitions it said "Could not find enough free space for automatic partitioning. Please use another partitioning method"

Surely 8 GB is more than enough space for partitioning, so where am I going wrong and why does it want to install on the USB stick as well?

Uh oh. Your card is not supported by any driver version up to 304.125.
A newer driver may add support for your card.
Newer driver releases may be available in backports.

SUSE / Novell :: 1-Click Install ATI Driver For ATI X1950 Video Card Corrupts - 11.1

May 23, 2009

I have installed Open Suse 11.1 on two different machines. One contains an ATI X850 video card, and the other contains an ATI X1950 video card. I updated the ATI drivers on the 850 card and it works like a dream. I updated the ATI drivers on the 1950 card and Suse becomes unusable. System works fine before the update. Before the update I ran it at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. I thought I would lower it to 1024 x 768 to see if that would help, but it does not. I dual boot with WinXP, and card works fine with that setup at 1280 x 1024, so I would suspect this is a specific problem with my Suse setup as opposed to a Motherboard issue.

Ubuntu :: Video Card Swap - Screen Using A Default Video Driver

Jan 25, 2011

If I take out the existing video card and put in another one of a different type (but not a different brand), how does Ubuntu behave? I know what Windows typically does. Windows starts up the screen using a default video driver which is at least 1024 by 768 and then asks you what this new bit of hardware is and asks where the drivers are. I'm pretty sure Ubuntu has default drivers of its own, but I don't know what their resolution is.

I have a very stupid case, I have to use a domain user to install one software in RHL4.8, but this software need a super-user permission but not root.
So I need a domain user who has super-user permission.
Not use su, sudo.
If I use su or sudo ,the software will be installed under root. The requirement is the software must be installed under a domain user.
How can I do?
