Description Bill Pemberton 1999-09-07 19:20:58 UTC
Lorax dies right off on boot for me.  It looks like it
doesn't like my video card (#9 Revolution 4).  On boot it
ends with:

Unknown card, falling back to VGA16
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 96,  in ?
     result = xserver.startX()
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/", line
42 in startX
     print serverpath, "missing. Falling back to VGA16"
Namerror: serverpath
install exited abnormally

(and a few more lines that are just the end of a halt)
