anaconda crash on graphical upgrade on vaio PCG-SR1K
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:21 EDT
Sony Vaio PCG-SR1K (aka SR5K in US) with 128Mb RAM.
This has a neomagic chipset.
Attempted to upgrade RH 7.0+some updates+Ximian 1.4.
Selected the default (which is graphical) mode. X
flicked up for a moment and vanished again. On the
console was (some formatting errors, but the numbers
Probing for video card: NeoMagic 256 (laptop/notebook)
Probing for monitor type: Unable to probe
Probing for mouse type: generic - 3 button mouse (USB)
Waiting for X-server to start...log located in /tmp/X.log
.. X server started successfully.
Traceback (innermost last):
File /usr/bin/anaconda line 421
from splashscreen import splashScreenShow
File splashscreen.py line 20
from gtk import *
File gtk.py line 29
Runtime error: cannot open display
Install exited abnormally
Attempted to get to the error log on the other
virtual consoles, but sh appeared to have died
so couldn't :(
This seems repeatable at will. Just got exactly the same results twice
more. I haven't managed to get at the X log because I keep trying to
get at it just after it's given up and died, but if you need it, I can
try to be faster with my fingers.
