Description Nitin Dahyabhai 2000-06-27 23:40:11 EDT
Using the official CD mailed to me, the installer dies with:

The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Error:        No symbols named "nodeadkeys" in the include file "us"
>               Exiting
>               Abandoning symbols file "default"
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
Error loading keyboard description
Xlib:  extension "XFree86-Misc" missing on display ":1.0".
sending termination signals...

...with these options chosen:
Screan 1:	English

Screen 2:	Generic 104-key PC 		[Logitech Cordless iTouch]
		US English
		Disable dead keys

Screen 3:	Microsoft Intellimouse (PS/2)	[Logitech Cordless Wheel]

Screen 5:	Server System

It continues when I use the exact same options but choose Custom.
Comment 1 Nitin Dahyabhai 2000-06-28 00:38:34 EDT
Disk was originally partitioned this way when it was crashing:
	hda1: Boot Manager
	hda2: HPFS
	hda3: VFAT
	hda4: extended
	hda5: HPFS

(3 and 5 may have been switched as there was a second bootable 
copy of NT4 installed for recovery of the first)

No longer dies after disk has been repartitioned through custom system mode
and also not after I rebooted to restart installer

new layout:
	hda1: Linux native
	hda2: Linux swap
	hda3: Linux native
	hda4: extended
	hda5: Linux native
	hda6: Linux native

The "HPFS" partitions were really NTFS4. HDA1 had the OS/2 Boot Manager.

Known problem which was fixed for beta3.
