I'm having a problem when I start X. X comes up but there are no icons and 
nothing to do.  I can move the mouse but I can't click on anything.  I 
don't know if this is a bug yet.  I have an S3Virge GX and the installer 
for the Server option selects XFree86 (not XFree86-SVGA and not the 
s3virge driver.)  There doesn't seem to be anywhere in the installer to 
change this.  Thinking I had mis-configured something, I ran the installer 
again, this time selecting Upgrade an existing installation.  I hit next 
then it crashed and asked me to insert a floppy disk and fill out a bug 
report.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install server installation with X.
2.X doesn't work right.
3.Reinstall and select upgrade an installation.

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-09 18:16:13 EST
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-02-11 23:11:33 EST
You need to reboot your system and let fsck run to clean your existing
filesystems.

The traceback is fixed.
