When I attempt to install wolverine on my IBM Thinkpad 560Z,
the installation freezes just before the "Mouse Configuration"
screen is fully drawn. The widgets are not completely drawn.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect external floppy drive
2. boot off pcmcia.img
3. insert pcmciadd.img and proceed
4. select NFS, DHCP, and point to my redhat 7.0 server by IP address
Actual Results: Anaconda freezes at the "Mouse Configuration" screen.
The screen is only partly drawn with missing edges to the widgets,
as if stopped in mid-redraw. I can't use ctrl+alt+F1 to change
to a console, nor does it respond to ctrl+alt+delete.
Nothing happens when I click the mouse anywhere on the screen,
but I can still move the mouse.
Expected Results: I expected to be able to select a mouse and proceed with
installation. The IBM thinkpad 560Z has a trackpoint, but
so do all the rest of my computers, including the omnibook.
I have successfully installed wolverine on a low-end HP Omnibook
from the same server so I know the server is good.
I had seen this problem before when I attempted to install
fisher on my 560Z. I did not find a workaround.
I have in the past successfully installed redhat 7.0 and
redhat 6.2 on this laptop. It currently runs redhat 7.0.
Try booting the installer with the 'nousb' option on the command line, like
