Description Stefan Geuns 2005-11-15 09:00:21 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
Boot the latest boot.iso with these commandline options:
linux graphical resolution=1400x1050

I get the error as shown below and the installer quits. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot boot.iso
2. type: linux graphical resolution=1400x1050
3. select http and wait until graphical part starts

Actual Results:  Installer crashed while starting

Expected Results:  Installer should have started in graphical mode.

Additional info:

File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 963, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpxl/xhwstate.py", line 154, in get_valid_resolution
xcfg = xhwstate.XF86.HardwareState(defcard=videohw, defmon=monitorhw)
NameError: Global name 'xhwstate' is not defined

I'm running in vmware 5.5 beta 2 (build 18007)
I made an IDE HD of 6 GB.
Videocard outside vmware is a ati x300 mobile and screen support resolution up to 1400x1050. vmware supports this too, because I had core 4 running before.
If I don't enter the resolution= part, then the installer starts as normal.

Please try tomorrow and let me know if it works for you.
Comment 2 Stefan Geuns 2005-11-17 12:23:38 EST
Works now. 
Would it be possible to enlarge the installation area instead of using the
brownish background?
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-12-02 11:08:02 EST
We only really have images that work at the regular resolution and the lowres
version, so it'd probably look pretty weird if we made the installation area larger.
