Description Philipp Straehl 2007-01-27 20:55:18 UTC
Description of problem: Installation bug with anaconda. Don't reply to this bug report, I am a happy windows user who just wanted to learn Linux. I will wait for another 3 years until there is a Linux distribution who is technically possible to install. Actually, there were several bugs. I tried about 10 times to install Fedora 6, and three times the installation hung up at different times. Once I even had a completed installation, but after reboot there were tons of USB errors, although I have only one USB device attached (Wacom tablet). The installation may work if I tried another 10 times and would buy a standard mouse, but I'm no more interested. Just wanted to report this in the hope that someone who has the same hardware as I have is informed. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info: Computer System: Intel Desktop Board D975xbx2 Intel Core2duo 2.13MHz Nvidia quadro FX 4500 Wacom Intuos 2 graphic tablet

What did you previously have installed?
Comment 3 Philipp Straehl 2007-02-01 06:59:23 UTC
3 Windows operating systems. One 64- and two 32-bit installations. As this workstation is permanently in use, I can not change HDDs. Instead, I was able to install Solaris 10 on a old pc, and now I try to run Blender (3D graphics application) on it. I must apologise for my above message. It is rather me who has to spend 3 years to learn Linux, Solaris, etc., because there are too many details that I don't understand yet.

The anaconda log file you provided indicates that the disk you were installing to already had a previous Linux installation on it. You can wipe the disk using a partitioning utility (or Linux, dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/path/to/hard/disk) and reinstall again. Based on your comments, it doesn't appear you are interested in resolving the problem(s). Closing this bug, but if you do want to work on resolving these problems, just reopen the bug and we'll get back on it.
