Description of problem:
When installing RHL80 on Compaq EVO 51S, the installer crashed during X
configuration; When I asked it to test X configuration the monitor displayed
that frequency (I do not know which frequency was meant; perhaps dot frequency,
as both vertical and horizontal freq were correctly autodetected) is outside of
supported range; I pressed Enter on 'Back' button to choose more conservative
settings and got a couple  of python errors; I have saved trace to a floppy
which I am attaching later; please find below a few lines from the start of
trace file;
I am not sure what the reference to a Siemens monitor mean (I had COMPAQ 5500
monitor) - perhaps I made some mistake?

so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
