Description Andrey Ponomarenko 2014-10-08 12:27:19 MSD
Description of problem:

If you select "ROSA Desktop Fresh R4 in basic graphics mode" in syslinux when installer will start with nouveau graphics instead of VESA.

Probe: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=3836c4beee

Option "xdriver=vesa" in syslinux seems to have no effect on the boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R3, R4

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a flash drive with ROSA Fresh R4 to your PC
2. Load your PC from flash drive
3. Enter the syslinux menu
4. Select "ROSA Desktop Fresh R4 in basic graphics mode"

Workaround: добавить 'vga=792' в список параметров при загрузке.

Image 6646 contains the updated menu parameters, so that vesa should be used for basic graphics.
