same thing with the same graphic card.
the install running only on "vesa"
Comment 2 Igor Miletic 2006-11-19 20:47:15 EST
Same problem here. However, this is not graphic card issue. It is something with
hard drives or hard drive partitions, I think.

I would get to black screen and mouse cursor as a cross part, and it would just
stay there forever. 

However, if I remove two of my hard drives from via sata controller, and just
keep my hard drive on promise controller, installation would continue as normal.

My mother board is ASSUS K8L Deluxe, 
AMD A64 3000+, 
ATi 9600 Pro, 
Creative Audigy2 sound card.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.
