Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 139568
RHEL3 tracker of BZ 108777 - USB mouse movement crashes X under anaconda
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:05 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda (?, the installer that is loaded by Fedora Install Disk 1)
correctly identifies my NVIDIA Geforce 2 MX and my Gateway CM751
monitor (same as Hitachi CM751).
The graphical installer fails with:
XIO: fatal IO error 104
I can install with linux text mode, and set up X later on, so we
know X can handle the setup.
A similar install with Redhat 9 works just fine in graphical mode.
This is not a show stopper, of course, but it might upset newbie users.
Rather than a cryptic XIO error message, how about a user
friendly (that is, usable and self-explanatory) message, or
better yet using the same code as the X configuration later
in the setup?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Fedora Test 3 (0.95) Install Disk 1
2. Default graphical install
Actual Results: Waiting for X server to start...log located in /tmp/X.log
1...2...3...4...5.... X server started successfully.
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":1.0"
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
[and so forth]
good: an understandable error message
better: drop back into text install
best: drop back to real X setup as
Fedora Test 3 Install Disk 1
NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX
Gateway CM751 (same as Hitachi CM751)
