Description Orion Poplawski 2008-03-12 13:22:58 EDT
Description of problem:

Trying to do pxe/kickstart install with 20080312 rawhide:

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/installclass.py", line 408, in configureX
 self.setVideoCard(id, driver, videoRam)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/installclass.py", line 392, in setVideoCard
 primary = id.videocard.primaryCard()
AttributeError: 'NoneType' ojbect has no attribute 'primaryCard'

This is a text mode install, not sure what it's trying to do with the video card.

Last VT3 line:

What's in your kickstart config, especially the X related lines?  And do you
have the full traceback?

Sorry, traceback scrolled off the screen.  Got what I could.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-03-13 11:52:12 EDT
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.  The basic problem here is the
conflict between the text and xconfig commands.  Text takes precedence, so
there's no X to query for information about how to set up the video card which
the xconfig command wants to do.
