Description Joey Welt 2001-02-15 01:56:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

During setup, just after you choose your video card, setup crashes out.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  choose your package type - custom / laptop / whatever - just make sure 
you keep the Xwindows & Gnome program groups selected
2.  continue through the install until you come to the Xwindows config - 
video card selection
3.   choose a video card and watch it fail.

Actual Results:  I receive errors and the install stops. You may view the 
complete anaconda dump @ http://www.katnap.com/anacdump.txt

Expected Results:  I expected to see the setup format the parition(s) and 
continue installing the said packages.

I have run setup about half a dozen times and have narrowed the error to 
the Xwindows set of packages.   If you select everything BUT the X-windows 
and Gnome Packages, install will be successful.  I have been unable to 
install the X-windows system after installation.  Package dependancies 
require XFree86-3.x to be installed prior to their installation.    

Machine this is being installed upon is a Toshiba Portege 7200ct Laptop 
with the standard boot boot disk.   The ISO images have been saved and 
verified on an VFAT parition for installation.    

Various other Stuff -
Bios 2.00
HD is an IBM-DJSA-220 (20 Gig)
320 MB Ram

This is a dupe, and I think its been fixed. Assigning to a developer.
