Description hans.van.der.aa 1999-11-08 11:23:26 UTC
The Toshiba SattelitePro 430CDT has the following video-card
CT65550, which I select during installation.

During installation, building the package list, I receive
the following messages:
Exception Occured
Traceback (innermost last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda" Line 225 in ? intf.run
File "../../../RedHat/instimage/usr/lib/python1.5/site-

File "../../../RedHat/instimage/usr/lib/python1.5/site-
packages/xf86config.py" Line 154 in set Vidcard
keyError : SERVER

Installation stops and Linux is killed.

This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.

As a workaround, you can try to perform a text installation (type
"text" at the boot prompt) and then choose to not setup X during the
installation.  Once the installation is complete and you have rebooted
the system, you should be able to run Xconfigurator and that will fix
things for you.

I solved the problem by choosing one of the video-cards, which depend on
After installation and reboot, invoke Xconfigurator again and than choose the
video-card of the Toshiba SatellitePro 430CDT.

This comment belongs to previous comment.
XFree86-SVGA see RedHat Reference Guide Appendix A page 441 for the video-cards
that require on

After the process of Xconfigurator, I was able to start X-windows.

Issue is resolved in the latest cut of the installer (available in beta.)
