Description insaner 2004-05-10 23:41:10 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
during install (tested from cd images on harddrive) once x begins to
load, (after detecting (correctly) my matrox millenium g400, followed
by my compaq p900 monitor and my generic 3button mouse ps/2) moving
the mouse before the "fedora" image appears, causes the x server to
die, and the installation to abort:

----
XIO fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":1.0"
after 0 requests (0 unkown processes) with 0 events remaining
install exited abnormally
----



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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.wait for x server to detect my hardware (upto mouse)
2.move mouse (before x server has loaded the "fedora" image/logo)
3.
    

Actual Results:  the x server died with:


----
XIO fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":1.0"
after 0 requests (0 unkown processes) with 0 events remaining
install exited abnormally
----

and then the installation aborted

Expected Results:  the cursor should have moved, and x server should
have loaded properly, and installation should have not failed

Same error happens when installing Fedora Core 2 on a Pentium 4,
Geforce MX 4 (generic) Dall desktop.

OPtion chosen: 
install from hard disk.

As soon as mouse is moved on detection of PS/2 mouse, anaconda quits.

Goes through if the mouse if not moved.

Same exact XIO error.

Comment 3 Ian Posner 2005-07-06 22:46:10 UTC
Fatal error occurs even if the mouse is removed from the PS/2 socket prior to 
booting! No mouse is detected and then the installer asks to choose a mouse. 
Choosing the "no mouse" option and pressing OK for the graphical install still 
causes the crash after the xserver is loaded. Using an old Riva 128 AGP 
graphics card.

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
