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
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.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
You need to reboot your system and let fsck run to clean your existing
The traceback is fixed.
