Description of problem:
Attempted to install Fedora Core 2 test1 on my DFI PW-65S i810 based 
motherboard system, with a 3dfx Voodoo 3 2000 pci video card and 
Envision 17" crt.  After reporting that it has found the card and 
monitor, it tries to start X, but after the screen blanks for a few 
moments, it comes back with the message the X startup has failed, and 
I am forced to reboot the machine.

Fedora Core 1 installed fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.CD 1 in drive, start machine
2.Press Enter to start graphical installation
3.Detects card and monitor, then install fails

If you boot with 'linux nokill', can you attach /tmp/X.log?
Comment 2 Joseph Kelch 2004-02-27 10:13:24 EST
I will attempt that this weekend.

Well, after removing my Gravis Xperience GamePad Pro USB, the X 
server came up fine during boot.  But when I tried to update my 
current Fedora Core 1, it tried to tell me I didn't have a swap 
partition, though I do have a 512mb one.  That scared me, so I 
aborted the install.

I have found that this ONLY fails if you move the mouse.  I know this 
sounds strange, but I am using the DVD iso for Fedora 2 test 2 and if 
I don't move the mouse - the installer starts fine

It appears that any install of Fedora Core (1 and all 2 test versions 
included) fails for me if I have anything attached to a USB port.  
Once I unplug everything, the install progresses normally.  Haven't 
tried plugging things back in after the install yet.

Did this get worked out for the final FC2 ?
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:56:39 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
