Description Orion Poplawski 2008-04-11 19:37:08 UTC
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
kickstart file:

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

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-11 20:37:25 UTC
That helps.  Waited 7 seconds.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-11 20:48:00 UTC
Okay, committed and pushed.  Thanks for the quick feedback
