FC5t1 CD1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start QEMU
2. Boot guest from CD
3. Accept defaults to start graphical install
Actual results:

Install halts with the message:

mini-wm: Fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server :1.0.

Expected results:

Graphical installation process should start.

Additional info:

X.log message:

(EE) Failed to load module "cirrus_alpine" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) No devices detected

Fatal server error:

I don't see that in the xorg-x11-drv-cirrus package
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-12-01 05:11:51 EST
Due to an X.Org oversight, the cirrus_laguna and cirrus_alpine sub-drivers are
missing from the cirrus driver package in modular X currently.  I believe this
is fixed in CVS however, and should be part of the RC3 release in a few days,
which we'll be updating to shortly.

Thanks for the report.

Temporary Makefile patch

This should help until FC5-test2
