Summary: setup fails to recommend video card
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: Alpha 1
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Blocker
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X.Org
AssignedTo: sndirsch@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: sgt-d@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: sndirsch@xxxxxxxxxx

suse: 10.3 alpha 1 64 bit

vid card: evga nvidia 7900 gt

asus: a8n-sli deluxe

during setup, graphics work fine... on the final step it tries to detect
hardware. "no proposal". at this point if i try to manually set the card it
tells me to click the link. if i click the link it tells me to click the link.

setup fails to come up with a recommendation for my video card and it is 100%
unresolvable manually.

i am guessing that because of the setup failure that the resulting xorg.conf is
not created at all, or corrupted , so my first boot up results in no graphical
system at all - startx fails to run due to missing info in xorg.conf.

my solution (workaround) was to rename xorg.conf to xorg.original, then rename
xorg.install to xorg.conf.

startx runs fine at this point.

i was then able to logout of x and install nvidia drivers normally.

this was confirmed on at least three separate "clean" installations.
