Trying to load RH7.2

Trying to load RH7.2

Post by Steve Loo » Sat, 23 Aug 2003 09:59:16

I'm extremely new to Alpha as I just got an AlphaServer 400 4/233 that was
abandoned from another project. I burned an image to CD and used:

boot dka400 -flags 0

to get things started. It seems to do fine until:

Running Anaconda
Probing for video card: Digital 8-plane TGA
Probing monitor type: Unable to probe
Probing for mouse type: Generic -3 button mouse (PS/2)

Attempting to start framebuffer based X server
Attempting to start native X server
Waiting for X server to start
1...2...3...4...5.... X server started successfully

Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 477, in ?
from splashscreen import splashScreenShow
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 21, in ?
from gtk import *
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/", line 29, in ?
RuntimeError: cannot open display
install exited abnormally

Any ideas what the problem is? Thanks,


1. When I try to open VB6, system is trying to load Project.

2. I receive an error code when trying to load WinXP, or trying to re

error codes Stop 0x00000050 ( 0xc0902788 0x00000000 0x808194a2 0x00000002)

Blue screen when attempting to install Windows XP. Also does it when I try
to repair windows. I installed it on a Hard Drive stuck in my other computer
as I was having issues installing it on the new one I'm building. Same
MainBoard, memory. I installed windows fine, but ended at that. I then
removed the drive and placed it back into the new computer, but after
installing one driver, it had an issue. once the reboot was done, it got
stuck in a reboot cycle. I then went in and did a repair on the (fixboot). I
got it too boot up too where I saw nothing but a mouse cursor. I then
rebooted again, and it was stuck again in the reboot cycle. I then did repair
on windows, and then it proceded to give me the Blue Screen again in the new
system as it did when I first attempted to load windows on it. Could there
be a hardware issue I can not figure out? What do the error codes stand
