Description Inger Karin Haarbye 2000-02-14 15:12:19 UTC
Celeron 366, 128MB RAM, ATI@work Video-card (4MB) using Mach64-server.
Graphic install worked OK with Redhat 6.1 - With "Piglet" i got an error
message - and the installer returned to text mode.
Later X was configured (and the X-server detected and probed) without any

What kind of mouse do you have on the system?  There are a couple of conditions
under which the GUI installer will not start.  1) can't bring up the Xserver 2)
can't determine type of mouse 3) not enough RAM on the system

We have been having known bugs probing for mouse type and I am betting this is
what you are seeing.  Let me know the type of mouse and I will confirm here in
the lab.

This mouse would fall into the category of the mice that we have been seeing
problems with during the installation, so that is a good thing.  We have fixed
up these problems and will include the fixes in the next rev of the beta.
