Error Starting GUI Installer with PCMCIA NFS Install
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
On a Sony Vaio with the Neomagic NM2160 (Vendor 10c8, Device 0004) doing an
install via pcmcia.img and an NFS install. It attempts to start up X and
gets the following traceback
Probing for mouse type...
/usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA missing. Falling back to VGA16
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 250, in ?
result = xserver.startX
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/xserver.py", line 44, in startX
server = x.test ([':1', 'vt7', '-s', '1440', '-terminate'], spawn=1)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/xf86config.py", line 868, in test
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
X startup failed, falling back to text mode
From which point it falls back to text mode and the install proceeds
this issue has been added to the winston scrub list ... thanks!
updated Cards file, should work in next build.
