Description Erik Enge 2002-08-26 15:32:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020615
Debian/1.0.0-3

Description of problem:
In text mode, when installing RedHat Null on i386, having no mouse attached to
the box makes anaconda exit and halt the system ("you may now safely reboot your
system").  

There is a Python traceback ("no mouse found"-type thing), but there is now way
I can get a hold of it since anaconda shuts the system down (thing scroll past
pretty quickly and I can't write it down by hand after-the-fact).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Null (no mouse attached)
2. Choose text or GUI install
3. Wait for it to die saying "no mouse found" when starting up anaconda
	

Actual Results:  Anaconda halted the system gracefully.

Expected Results:  It should not matter if the mouse is present or not for
text-based installs.
