Description Vincent Alloy 2008-06-12 14:50:31 UTC
Description of problem:
Installation or upgrade fails on Dell Optiplex 745 equipped with Intel
Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 9

How reproducible:
Just try to install Fedora Core 9 or upgrade from FC8 to FC9 on a Dell Optiplex 745.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installation/upgrade procedure.
Actual results:
Running anaconda, the Fedora system installer - please wait...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 877, in <module>
    probeHW(opts, x_already_set, xserver)
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 456, in probeHW

        /mnt/source done
        /selinux done
you may safely reboot your system

Expected results:
Go to the following step :)

Additional info:
According to the traceback, it seems that anaconda was trying to probe my video
card but failed. Another element is the line about my Samsung harddrive. Don't
know who is the culprit.
