Can you start X once the system has been installed?  In either case, please
provide the Xorg.0.log file.  Also is it possible to get the anaconda X.log off
the system in another way? Using a usb flash disk maybe?

Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-05-01 15:58:35 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update

Comment 4 Adam Jackson 2007-05-30 21:31:45 UTC
We will need the /tmp/ramfs/X.log from the failed X run to work this issue.  You
can start dhclient from the installer if you need network access to get this file.

Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2007-07-09 21:41:03 UTC
Without the X log from the affected configuration, we do not have sufficient
information to work on this issue.  If this is still an issue for you in a
released version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, please attach the relevant X
log, and reopen this bug.
