Description of problem:
I have a mouse attached on COM1 but I do not want to install it with Linux.
When I select "No Mouse", Anaconda crashes and reboots. This occured in Red Hat
7.3 as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the Anaconda program from CD 1
2. Attach a mouse to COM1
3. Select "No Mouse"
Actual Results: Crash of Anaconda
Expected Results: Going on with installing
Please try a TUI based install, or use a mouse with the install. There should be
no bad consequences of having a mouse detected.
TUI install? You mean the graphical installer?
Sorry - I mean boot the installer with the command line 'linux text'.
No problem :)
I did install in text mode, and then that error occured.
Doing a graphical install with No mouse selected,
X won't start and anaconda will fail and bail out.
Although if I do the graphical install and I fake
that I have a serial mouse on COM1. It works.
Note that a graphical install without a mouse DOES work,
although the installer advices against it.
Maybe, if No mouse is selected,
it could 'fake' a serial mouse on COM1 ?
I believe this is fixed in our internal tree.
