[Server-devel] Fwd: Installing 1.63

I am having another installation problem with 1.63. After typing
./olpc-install, I receive:
FATAL: Module md not found.
Probing for video card: ATI Technologies Inc Rage XL
graphical installation not available... starting text mode
Then there are a lot of errors messages that scroll by too fast to
record. They include lines like:
File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 875, in <module>
anaconda.id = instClass.installDataClass(anaconda, extraModules,
floppyDevice, anaconda.methodstr, opts.display_mode, anaconda.backend)]
The last line I receive is:
usage: /usr/sbin/setenforce [ Enforcing | Permissive | 1 | 0 ]
After typing ./olpc-install, I was not prompted for any information.

I think the problem was hardware incompatibility. 1.63 looks like it is
installing on another server, a PowerEdge 2600.

Something funny is in the initrd. I would suggest rebuilding it for him
and see if that fixes the problems.
