Subject says it all. Xconfigurator --kickstart will fail on intel 810
chipsets and
exits with status 2 after probing and without writing any configuration.

Setting the card up interactively (accepting all default answers) works
Why doesnt kickstart and interactive use the same code!?

This is no kickstart installation. I just cloned the hard drive and called
"Xconfigurator --kickstart" on the command line to set up the vga card.

But this will cause Xconfigurator to exit with code 2 (not writing any configs)
whereas doing "Xconfigurator" and accepting all default answers works fine.

Unfortunately I do not have access to the box anymore.

looked into, reopen the bug with attached requested info and I will try
to figure it out.  An strace & ltrace of Xconfigurator would also be
