Description Kevin L. Mitchell 2000-01-13 02:47:55 UTC
My (integrated) video card is identified as an "ET4000 W32i", which is
not on the list in RedHat/instimage/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Cards--but the
"ET4000 W32i, W32p (generic)" is.  I was able to work around the problem
by copying the CD to local disk and editing the Cards file to insert the
new key and a "SEE" backreference to the correct key.  Before making
this fix, I was unable to proceed with the install, even in text mode;
the installer would error out with a "KeyError" due to the above problem.
This cost me some hair, and would be good to figure out and fix :)

I should look before I leap; this bug is the same one as pointed out in
7322--but at least I have a work-around ;)
