Description Gene Czarcinski 2001-02-02 18:07:31 UTC
I specified nofb at the installer boot prompt.  While the kernel bootup no
longer uses framebuffer, the XFree86 driver selected is the FB.

Verified this behavior.  Thanks for your report.

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-02-02 23:06:23 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-02-09 09:04:18 UTC
Fixed in cvs.  If we are in 'nofb' mode, anaconda never tries to access the
/dev/fb0 device or run the XF86_Dev server.  Thanks for your report.
