Problem with 6800GS+graphical installation
 
When I try to start graphical installation of:
a)fedora core 5
b)debian
c)kubuntu (without the safe graphics mode)
d)Suse 9.1
e)Suse 10.0
I get some weird vertical lines (the ones in the images) and the X server freezes. Only mandriva supports my card for now and i have started to believe that something is REALLY wrong. Take a look here:

All those distros i mentioned install without any problems in text mode (well, at least the ones that support text mode installation), but the graphics problem remains. I want to install FC5 for now or kubuntu :(
well, i really really REALLY hope someone here has seen this problem again and wants to help me. Thanks in advance.
My card is an XFX 6800GS XXX edition, has worked flawlessly until now and it is still working flawlessly under Windows or Mandriva

I'd suggest performing a text based installation until you're able to install the nvidia X driver post-install.

Thanks,
Lonni

Your problem seems to be opensource nv driver bug.

netllama, you mean to reformat and reinstall using the text based installation, then install the latest nvidia driver? (8762?)

If i start the installation with an fx 5200, install the latest drivers and then replace the 5200 with 6800 will this work? because i have tried to install the driver but it was difficult (in text mode always). well, i'll see what I can do

sangu: i have seen other users having this problem too, but i dont want to just "throw away" my card. I have 2 FX5200, one 9800se and one ti4600 here at home but i like my 6800gs and i would like to use it :)

You could also start the installation with an fx 5200, install the latest drivers and then replace the 5200 with 6800.

The text based installation worked for me,
then i updated my kernel,
then installed nvidia-kmod and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia,
then setsebool -P allow_execstack=1 and setsebool -P allow_execmod=1
then /usr/sbin/nvidia-xconfig
then reboot
AND.....

well, after spending some hours searching in forums I finally figured out how to do it. THanks guys, you rock. I didn't install the latest drivers yet though, i have to install kernel sources first
