Hampton beta2 install fails on S3Trio 3D systems
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:47 EDT
Description of problem:
On IBM xSeries 250 and 240 systems with Trio3D video, anaconda dies when
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from Hampton beta2 CD 1.
Actual Results: Error message appears:
Running anaconda - please wait...
Probing for video card: Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 377, in ?
videohw = videocard.VideoCardInfo(skipDDCProbe = flags.test)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/videocard.py", line 410m in __init__
server = "XF86_" + vc.getCardData()["SERVER"]
install exited abnormally
... (shutdown messages)
Expected Results: Installation proceeds.
Occurs in both normal and low res mode.
Text mode install doesn't even work.
This is because the hwdata package in beta2 had the trio3d listed as unsupported
in xfree4 and no xfree 3 driver listed. That's already fixed in CVS. We should
probably handle this case more gracefully though.
Fixed in Beta3 (skipjack).
