Re: extracting XFree86 file from anaconda install



Paul,

I think that anaconda would simply have used the generic VGA driver.  I
have no concrete evidence for this, but I think that this is what it does.

Therefore you could try to get the server running just using a default VGA
driver; bare in mind that this will be limited to 16 colours etc.

HTH.

Chris.
