Default Re: Install issues -- Fedora Core 1 (Yarrow)

When you choose the video driver do NOT select the generic FX.. that may be loading the 'vesa' X driver which does not work well (that also happened with RH9). Instead try choosing 'geforce 2 generic' and see if that works out. When you get it installed you should be able to use the 'nv' driver fine. (don't confuse vesa X driver with the vesafb module for terminals).

If you cannot install after selecting the 'geforce 2 generic' and a generic monitor the right size... then you better just try another distro. In the end... you should use a distro that will work for you.. not against.
