It's not related to graphical vs. text mode install, it fails on both

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 441060 ***
Comment 3 Michal Schmidt 2008-04-07 11:16:20 EDT
Ajax, are you sure it's a duplicate? To me it looks like a similar issue in a
different package. Bug 441060 was in system-config-display, while xserver.py is
in rhpxl.
Comment 4 Michal Schmidt 2008-04-08 14:01:49 EDT
Nevermind, it's actually a dupe of bug 441105 and it's fixed in rhpxl-1.3-1.fc9.
