Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 36629
Mouseless GUI install broken
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:44 EDT
It fails to find a mouse. It then asks what mouse - I picked 'none'. It
then fails to start X. A text mode install works but also fails to set up
When X fails to start, does it fall back to text mode or does the install exit
abnormally? What I'm seeing on my test machine is that the installer just
crashes. Maybe we shouldn't even start the X server if the mouse is not found.
In my case it tries to run X a few times then aborts politely. It seems that at
the point it aborts nicely it should have reverted to text mode even if it did
try and start X
Yes, it should fall back to text mode. There is code to do that...I'm not sure
why it doesn't fall back to text mode. I will investigate further.
