The thread is about an issue of not being able to bring up simple guis required to install virt guests on centos 6. Apparently a bug exists in xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.13.0-6.el6-x86_64 the driver for the ati es1000 and how it deals with xorg. Ubuntu I think has popped in a fix as well as many others. Redhat, as far as I could tell, added it to 6.1..something I guess not coming to centos for a while. it is having an issue of addressing two things at once and freaks itself out. Simple fix (for the devs i guess) and listed on the freedesktop.org bug list. However I have no idea how to redo a driver like that, much less specifically designed for redhat. After a month of fighting this and finally figuring it out, kinda bummed I cannot resolve it. I have no choice but to buy a temporary card, lose access to IPMI due to second card, and just hope they get out 6.1 sometime soon. If you are getting a board and not doing gnome/kde but want to do X...you may have an issue if it has an es1000, ati, radeon rn50. well...now off to find a dang card so I can actually deploy this thing. sad.
