Description jim wiegand 2004-12-28 03:32:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 Description of problem: When doing a Kickstart install on a Syntax motherboard I get the following message: "You are trying to install on a machine which isn't supported by this release of Fedora Core." But the installation already cleared my partition table and the system is gone. I specified clearpart in the kickstart file. I would expect the installer should check the architecture of the machine before wiping the disk. CPU info: Vendor Id: CentaurHauls Family: 6 Model: 7 Model Name: VIA Samuel2 Stepping: 3 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-runtime-10.1.0.2-1.i386 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot FC3 disk1 2. linux ks=http://url/to/kickstart.cfg 3. bleccch Actual Results: Disk was wiped, install was halted Expected Results: Install would be halted with no changes Additional info: Is there any way to support this motherboard on a standard install? I know I am being cheap here, but FC3test3 worked just fine.

What is a "syntax motherboard"?
Comment 2 jim wiegand 2005-02-02 12:31:49 UTC
Here are the specs for the motherboard: Syntax - S8601MP - VIA Socket 370 microATX Motherboard with Audio, Video, USB 1.1, AMR, WOL and 10/100Mbps Ethernet LAN Support with integrated VIA C3 1.2Giga Pro Processor (S452-1002) See http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item-detailsInactive.asp?Sku=S452-1002 Further information: Debian Sarge (i386 w/2.6 kernel) loads and runs fine. It seems that the architecture description on FC3 is incorrect. In the kernel tree there are i586 and i686 specs but not i386.

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and report whether or not it fixes your problem. If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version field of this bug to 'fc4'. Thank you.

This bug has been automatically closed as part of a mass update. It had been in NEEDINFO state since July 2005. If this bug still exists in current errata kernels, please reopen this bug. There are a large number of inactive bugs in the database, and this is the only way to purge them. Thank you.
