Ok i have downloaded the 3CD's for Redhat Fedora.
I have tested them on the machine im writting this message. they seem to pass the chekcs and work, the GUI installation works.
But i want to install Fedora on my other computer. which is.
A HP x4000
2x intel Xeon 1.8
2X SCSI 18GB
ATI FIre GL4 graphics card.
2050 MB RDRAM (well almost 2050)
1 DVD drive
1 HP DVD writter
If i go for the normall install, by pressing 'enter' it starts the anoconda install.
it loads the SCSI driver: sym53c8xx
then starts the anoconda installer. these are the messages i recive.
probing for video card type: VESA generic
probe for monitor: hp1130 (thats correct)
probe for mouse: 3button generic
waiting to start native x server, 1,2,3,4,5 x server started sucssefuly
XIO: fatal IO error(connection reset by peer) on x server ":1.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
Install exited abnormally.
then it gos onto say i can restart etc...
now, i have tried using the text based installer, and after some partion messing about, i managed to get it to install. but when i select to run fed off its main menu, it tells me the x server cannot start?
Please help me im so confused!
