Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:36 EDT
Description of Problem:
On a machine without a mouse plugged in (PS/2 normally), early in a Fairfax
beta1 "boot: expert updates" install (using the anaconda update disk for
writing traceback files), got anaconda crash with traceback.
Twice in a row.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with boot.img and "boot: expert updates".
2. Insert drivers.img disk when prompted.
3. Select English, us, Local CDROM.
4. Insert updates.img disk when prompted.
5. Receive anaconda traceback.
Running anaconda - please wait...
Probing for video card: S3 Trio64 (generic)
Probing for monitor type: Dell V15X
Probing for mouse type: None - None
Waiting for X server to start...log located in /tmp/X.log
...X SERVER FAILED X startup failed, falling back to text mode
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 540, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/installclass.py", line 195, in setKeyboard
AttributeError: 'None' object has no attribute 'setKeyboard'
install exited abnormally
Fixed for beta 2 - we do not allow X to start if no mouse attached.
