Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2010-04-25 15:26:10 UTC
Is this reproducable if you use the nomodeset or vnc parameters?  It's highly unlikely this is an anaconda bug but some more data would be helpful to know where to reassign.

Comment 2 Torsten Rausche 2010-04-26 10:20:31 UTC
Same problem here. Tried upgrading from F12 to F13 Beta using preupgrade yesterday (2010-04-25).

The nomodeset boot parameter does not help but vnc can be used as workaround.

Comment 3 Nikola Pajkovsky 2010-04-26 13:43:45 UTC

X guys - we're starting to see several of these again.  Last time this happened was confusion due to the input stuff switching away from HAL.  Has something else happened in input land that we need to be aware of in the installation environment?

Comment 7 Dave Airlie 2010-04-28 02:57:52 UTC
reassign to server, hopefully whot will know.

Comment 8 Peter Hutterer 2010-04-28 04:29:43 UTC
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.8.0-6 has moved the default config files. what are the chances they're not there? /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf, that's where the server reads them from for the input driver assignment.

could that be it?

Comment 9 Chris Lumens 2010-04-28 14:42:35 UTC
Yes that looks to be the problem.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 14 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 15:51:34 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
