Description Wendy Hung 2002-03-08 11:50:19 EST
Description of problem:
On IBM xSeries 250 and 240 systems with Trio3D video, anaconda dies when 
starting up.

How reproducible:

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"]
KeyError: SERVER
install exited abnormally
... (shutdown messages)

Expected Results:  Installation proceeds.

Additional info:

Occurs in both normal and low res mode. 

Text mode install doesn't even work.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-08 14:49:01 EST
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).
