Description Enrico Scholz 2000-06-16 18:26:37 UTC
In vmware 2.0 GUI-installation fails with

running /sbin/loader
Probing for mouse type...
Unknown card, falling back to VGA16
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 250, in ?
    result = xserver.startX ()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/xserver.py", line 38, in startX
    if not os.access (serverPath, os.X_OK):
TypeError: argument 1: expected string, None found
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
you may safely reboot your system

Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2000-06-16 18:52:31 UTC
This is a dup of 12042 which, in turn, is a dup of 12041 ... if installer needs
to use VGA16, it fails.

Please consolidate bugs and verify in test lab.

vmware is not currently a supported platform.
