On an install on a Sun Ultra1 with a TurboGX graphics board, both graphical
and text mode installers fail. Graphical installer fails just prior to X
startup and text when you reach X configuration. Traceback follows:
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 356 in __call__
todo.x.probe(probeMonitor = 0)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/xf86config.py", line 764 in probe
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/xf86config.py", line 658 in cards
card = cards[thecard]
KeyError: Sun Turbo GX
According to dmesg, the framebuffer is a cgsix TEC Rev 4 CPU sparc Rev b
Almost identical fault on Ultra 10 with Creator 3D video card.
KeyError: Sun FFB2+ Vertical Creator 3D
Poking around in the debugger, it looks like it simply doesn't have an entry in
the cards array for either of the adapters, and (more importantly!) doesn't
handle the exception gracefully.
SPARC is not a supported platform.
