Description of problem:
When I try to install Fedora Core 4 on my iMac G4 17" Globe, I only come to the step where the installation should format my harddrive (hda). There it stops and shows a errormessage. This is happening everytime.

On the startup, the X server is trying to start, but the installation falls back to textmode everytime. When im in the textinstallation, ill se the message "_X11TransSocketINETConnect() can't get adress for localhost:6001: Temporary failure in name resolution. Cannot open display ":1".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Starts the installation
2. Comes to the step where I partition my disc automaticly
3. The errormessage comes

Actual Results:  Ill get this errordescription:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1160, in ?
 intf.run(id, dispatch)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 496, in run

 elif (part.get_flag(parted.PARTITION_BOOT) == 1 and
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'name'

What partitioning scheme are you using?

Can you switch to tty2 and do parted /dev/hda print
