Attempting to install F9 on Dell Optiplex GC620 crashes just after anaconda begins
Last modified: 2008-08-14 13:17:56 EDT
Description of problem:Attempting to install Fedora 9 on my Dell Optiplex GX620 begins anaconda and then promptly fails with trace in python code (?) complaining about the (ATI) graphics card. I have attempted to boot in text mode, I have disconnected the Radeon X600 card and used the integerated video and I have attempted to boot with the "nofb" and/or "resolution=800x600" options, but all to no avail. Please help as this relates to a corporate environment and we need F9, soon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Fedora 9
How reproducible:Boot Installable DVD
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Installable F9 DVD
Actual results: Crash!
Expected results: Installation without problems
Please attach the complete traceback to this bug report so we can see where things are going wrong. Thanks.
Is there a way I can access to log of this traceback which I can find somewhere [or do I have to write it down by hand ... which would be a problem since the output exceeds a page on my monitor]?
If you've got a camera handy, you can at least take a picture and attach it to this bug report.

One pict of attempted F9 install
Good idea! Here is one ... will send a second pict in a minute. I hope you can read this well enough.

A second pict of the F9 install
A good idea. Let's hope these picts are clear enough to be of some help.
Yep, those tell me exactly what's going on. Unfortunately, it's a dupe of an F9 bug that I don't think has seen much activity. Thanks for the pictures.
