Description of problem:
I'm trying to install RedHat 7.1 but the installation hangs after the post-
installation procedure (the progress bar dialog shows, and then is closed
again). Then the GUI exits if I move the mouse or click in the GUI, and
then there is some text in the console:
(First something about the successful xserver start)
X server started successfully...
"Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0x14b776)
Everything in the installation works fine until this problem. I tried with
different package (rpm) selections (custom) and different X configurations
which shows OK.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install redhat 7.1 from CD on the slave drive
2. Install redhat 7.1 from CD on the master drive (last 5 GB)
CD installation of 6.0 works fine!
3. Trying to upgrade 6.0-->7.1. Installation fails when installing lilo
with a message about "/dev/hdb1 is not on the first disk".
Actual Results: Installation hangs with unexpected async reply.
Expected Results: Successful installation.
I have two IBM disks. The first one is win98 and Win2k with it's
bootloader and I'm trying to install on the second 20 GB disk (slave on
IDE1) with disk-druid config:
/boot (23mb, hdb)
/ (10000mb, hdb)
/swap (400mb, hdb)
I selected to install lilo on the first sector of boot partition and tried
with no lilo at all...

Text mode installation of 7.1 hangs too. There is no way to reach the console.
I have to reboot.
