Succesful FC8 Install, However...
I'm a new member and I had a successful install of FC8 on my Dell C800 laptop however after the first reboot at the logon screen, the video image looked torn in half with some kind of noisy boundary between the two halves. By holding down the Fn key and pressing an "F" key with the "Font" icon on it makes the video look normal but shrunk down to the center area of the lcd screen. Another pressing of the keys brings the same image full screen. Going into video properties all I see is 640 X 480 and 800 X 600 selectable resolutions. Everything else worked fine from the start, network, USB, mouse & keyboard; very pleased! Does anyone have a fix for this video problem? I'm fairly new at LINUX but had some old DOS command line experience in my past. From the searching on the web I've seen a lot of failed Linux video on this machine due to the ATI Mobility Rage hardware. I too failed on a previous Suse Linux 10.2 install. Again very pleased with Fedora 8!
