Description Need Real Name 2001-02-07 19:56:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i686)

Summary says it all. Generic SVGA worked with previous (6.x) RedHat version
installs. I circumvented the problem by choosing Unlisted Card instead, so
it's not really a serious problem, but the error dialog insisted I come
here and report it. I will attach the anaconda debugging output.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin Workstation install on VMWare client. I'm not altogether certain
that it needs to be a 'Workstation' install.
2. Choose 'Generic SVGA' when asked about what type of video hardware the
machine has.
3. Watch as the installer fails.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-02-12 07:14:03 UTC
Already been fixed.  The 'server' variable wasn't being properly initialized and
was essentially a non-existant variable when choosing 'generic svga'.
