Description R P Herrold 2001-02-11 21:00:27 EST
HP Netserver 5/100 LH -- Pent, 192M, PCI 3c905B nic, onboard
Adaptec AIC-7850 controller pair at rev 1.19S6; all SCSI
drives; Texel DM-xx24 K scsi CD-ROM drive (tray type), P/S 2
kbd and mouse (true MS 2 button serial compatible - PS/2
Anaconda displayed status message " ... X server is  None" --
two spaces between is and None
Traceback (innermost last)
  File '/u/s/anaconda'. Ln 307 in ?
   result = xserver.startX (runres)
  File '/u/l/a/xserver.py', Ln 95 in startX
   if fb_check == 0;
  File '/u/l/a/xserver.py', Ln 150 in fb_check
   print man

This implies a result check of "None" is probably being ignored ...

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-02-14 04:01:19 EST
I've added code to check for this condition.  Brock, please test this
extensively.  I couldn't duplicate this situation exactly, so I think this fix
works, but I can't be sure.  Please send a Cirrus Logic card my way if there's
one in the test lab.

Query:  Is there an image and anaconda which I can pull and test in advance
of the next set of CD's -- this host is at my home, and I can beat
on it pretty well /// Russ

Brent please make sure this works for the bug reporter with Wolverine.
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-02-19 18:50:38 EST
Does this work for you with Wolverine?

Comment 7 R P Herrold 2001-03-01 21:03:23 EST
