Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 442113
Need to wait longer for HAL to come up during install
Last modified: 2008-06-21 16:24:42 EDT
Description of problem:
This is a successor problem to bug #441598. Before, rhpxl would crash if HAL
wasn't ready by the time it wanted to connect to it. Now it doesn't crash, but
it fails to find any video hardware:
11:32:34 INFO : No video hardware found, assuming headless
This results in a runlevel 3 system, even though I specify the following in my
xconfig --startxonboot --defaultdesktop=KDE
I'm not sure if rhpxl should wait for HAL, or if anaconda should wait for HAL
before probing for hardware, so I'm filing against anaconda for now.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Can you try with the updates.img at
http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/updates-waitforhal.cgz and see if it helps? If
so, it should say how long it waited on tty1
That helps. Waited 7 seconds.
Okay, committed and pushed. Thanks for the quick feedback
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
