Description ssk 1999-11-25 08:56:06 UTC
I have tried to install a deluxe Redhat 6.1 on my old PC which haves
a Tseng Labs ET4000/W32 PCI video card. During installation i got
the following screen dump:

...
...
running intall...
running /sbin/loader
Probing for mouse type...
Tracebck (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 133, in ?
         result = xsever.startX ()
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/xserver.py", line 44, in startX
         x.probe ()
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/xf86config.py", line 170, in probe
        self.vidCards.append (self.cards (server[5:]))
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/xf86config.py", line 118, in cards
        card = cards[thecard]
KeyError: ET4000 W32i
install exited abormally
...
...

Changing to installation using "text" mode produced the same error
for the innermost calls and "expert" mode produced the precisly the
same error.

Oops, I added bug 8439 which is precisely the same problem; see there
for the workaround...
