Description Doug Chapman 2006-07-31 10:46:12 EDT
Description of problem:
This was seen doing a kickstart install on my HP Integrity servers.  I do not
see this when I do an interactive install.  I am using serial console.  The
systems do have video hardware however I have not monitor/keyboard on any so
they are used as headless systems.

The screen was rather garbled but I think I have managed to make this somewhat

Traceback (most recent call last):

Ah, this is just because of some odds and ends that didn't get finished up last
thing on Friday.  The whole new X startup process could still use some testing
on less common setups (headless, especially) since I don't have access to them.
