  • Hey all,

    It seems like there are some compatibility issues with F22 - I've managed to trick the installer by modifying /etc/fedora-release from 22 to 21, which progresses the installer. 

    However, the installer fails when it tries to interact with YUM, I assume this is to do with it being replaced in F22 with DNF (though that has actually be around for a while) - it gives warnings and other errors which are unhandled by the installer (may be wrong about this).

    Any idea when F22 will be supported or do you have manual install steps? 

    Cheers

    PS I'm on a brand new Macbook Pro/w Retina 2015 - everything else is working well, apart from the Thunderbolt connectors (graphics doesn't work, but thunderbolt NICs do).

  • F22 will be most likely be targeted by the next installer release (they're roughly quarterly).

    You can find the repository used by the installer here (as well as the
    list of packages it would install or upgrade):

    https://download.01.org/gfx/ilg-config.cfg (see the f21 section of the config)

    Although of course we haven't tested anything on f22 yet so no guarantees.

  • Really waiting for this too... You have no idea how disappointing it is to be stopped like this.  I just got this laptop from a friend for a little bit of computer work I did for him.  It was payment.  Anyways, its a Sony Vaio, VGN-FZ140E.  I found out it has a 64-bit CPU in it and oddly enough it came with Windoze Vista on it.  So I blew it away.  I hate Windoze anyhow and always get rid of it.  Tried installing Fedora 22 on it and right away it complains about something do with with the graphics card, stops the install and I had to do some hacking and removing packages just to get Fedora to instal at low vga mode.  Now, after a successful install, I am forced with a 1024x768 res, with about an inch and a half cut off on either side of my internal display.  Be up for the past 24 hours just trying to get it all to work at what it should be, which is 1280x800 (16:10), but to even get the info I need about the display in this thing for a modeline is freaking amazingly difficult.  So now you have a cool little installer that would have saved me 24 hours of hacking?? Dam dude wish I known that 24 hours ago, but even still, it dont like my F22 install.... guess I am gonna have to go back to 21...

     

    Anyone now a way to get this F*** thing to work?!?!?

    Sony Vaio (VGN-FZ140E)  Intel graphics GM965

    only info I have on internal display so far is;

    WXGA 15.4 (1280x800) Display 

     

    Thanks,

  • "OH MY F****K GAWD"  **Banging head on desktop repeatedly**

     

    UPDATE!!

     

    I got it to work!  Finally!!  And the problem was SOOOO Simple to fix, I just wished I had known this all 24 hours ago!!

     

    Here it is, well as I said before, the trouble installing Fedora 22 I had left some things around in the installation that has to be removed.  Mainly because I had to use low vga mode to install it, afterwords Fedora still thinks it had to run in low vga mode ALL because of grub2.  When you install with the "nomodeset" grub2 variable, it needs to be removed from your grub2.cfg cmdline in order to get all your cool resolution back.  So in short, having the "nomodeset" in my grub2.cfg file was messing with me all along.  Remove it and it will probably work for anyone else too.  I wasnt really able to mess with the driver much, so I dont think there was anything else I did to get it to work, expect maybe a "sudo dnf update" is about all.

     

    Cheers and thanks all.

  • Hi - glad to hear you ot it sorted out.

    To answer the original question about f22 support, we've started work on the next release of the installer and it will be targeting f22.
