Description Kile Reeves 2003-03-15 22:16:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
I specify the --card option on the xconfig line:

   xconfig --card "VESA driver (generic)"

The value I used seems to be ignored in favor of the one that it probes and 
finds.  When I tried installing without a kickstart file, and just answered 
the questions (in text mode), the resulting anaconda-ks.cfg file uses 
the "VESA driver (generic)" string, but when I used the kickstart file, the 
anaconda-ks.cfg file has the probed card's string.

    It seems like the kickstart file's value for the --card option is being 
ignored.  I've found this in both 8.0 and 7.3.  I'll attach the two anaconda-
ks.cfg files.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: an install using a kickstart file that specifies the --card option
2.make the card specified be different from the one that gets probed

This should be fixed with the changes I just made.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-24 17:58:40 UTC
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
