Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-10-10 17:01:29 EDT
The  system is a KP1000/667 with a cdrom on hda and two scsi disks.

I booted the floppy set with the default gui install.  This failed during
X11 initialization with

Module vgahw
Fatal Server Error
Caught Signal 4  Server Aborting.

The display controller is a Texas Instruments TVP4020 Permedia 2 (rev 1).

I then used a text install.  Everyting when fine including X configuration.

hmmm ... I cannot reproduce this behavior with a permedia 2 card in our test lab
(different machine, though) ... do you have success with another video card in
that machine ...? also, what firmware version do you have ...?
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2000-10-17 11:04:28 EDT
This is a multi-boot system and I really can't change the video adapter (it came
from Compaq with this adapter).  The system is a EV67 with SRM V5.6-8.
Comment 3 Brock Organ 2000-10-19 12:55:06 EDT
hmmm ... we have seen video adapters' installer functionality affected by
firmware level ... the machine that worked for me using the permedia 2 was an
ev67 (up1000; tsunami dp264) running SRM Console A5.5-82 ...
