Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200755
anaconda dies with: AttributeError: XSetup instance has no attribute 'xhwstate'
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
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):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 900, in ? instClass.setInstallData(anaconda)

you may safely reboot your system
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% when doing kickstart installs
Steps to Reproduce:
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.
