Description Kurt Ludwig 2001-06-20 09:15:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
on an AlphaStation 500, the installer dies when trying to use the standard 
install method

How Reproducible:
start an install of RedHat 7.1 using bootflags "0"

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:
the installer dies and prompts you to reboot your Alpha

Expected Results:

For anaconda to start correctly

Additional Information:
might this be because of the default TGA card in the AS500?

here's the traceback:

Probing for mouse type...
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/annaconda", line 314 in ?
   result =xserver.startX (runres, nofbmode)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/xserver.py", line 100 in startX
   ServerPath = '/usr/X11R6/bin/' + x.server
TypeError: illegal argument type for built in operation

There is referance to this in the axp-list. See:

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-06-26 14:15:44 EDT
The X configuration section has been completely rewritten, so this issue should
not appear in future versions.
