After post intallation completes the bug window opens.  After saving and 
clicking ok the system reboots.  When the kernel reboots the kernal begins 
to load and the dots get to about 6 or so you know  ........  Then hangs.
Here's the bug stuff.

The system is a Hewlett Packard E60 Server with 128M.  Adaptec 74xxx 
series SCSI controller.  No indications of any problems at all until the 
bug window appears after post intallation.

Traceback (innermost last):

Attempting installing the anaconda fix without result.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2000-12-15 16:42:05 UTC
I suspect that this bug is a duplicate of bug #21904.  What kind of video card
does the system have and what did anaconda probe the card to be?  Also, did you
change the video card selection from what anaconda probed?

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2000-12-15 16:44:36 UTC
A potential workaround is to skip configuring X in the install and use
Xconfigurator once the system reboots.  I'm looking into a better solution.
