Description Kashyap Chamarthy 2010-07-10 18:57:30 UTC
Description of problem:

RHEL6-beta2 -- RHEL6.0-20100701.3  install(as a kvm guest on F12), fails to install when I select Basic-Server(with gnome-desktop).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pick the iso from here(and verify sha256sum to ensure download complete) -- http://download.devel.redhat.com/rel-eng/RHEL6.0-20100701.3/6.0/Server/x86_64/iso/RHEL6.0-20100701.3-Server-x86_64-DVD1.iso
2. Proceed with it as a kvm guest.
3.Now at the anaconda install wizard, select 'Basic-Server'(or 'Desktop') and customize it by adding 'Gnome-Desktop' and a bunch of other softwares
4. Now, proceed with install
Actual results:
Anaconda exits abnormally.

'Anaconda died after receiving signal 6.
install exited abnormally [1/1]'

(See attached screenshot)

Expected results:
Install should go ahead smoothly.

Additional info:
Note: If I just select 'Basic-Server' _without_ any customizations and proceed, install completes successfully.

Not sure, what I'm missing. I tried multiple times to get the install going with 'Desktop' and other customizations but to no avail.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2010-07-11 21:51:15 UTC
How much memory are you giving your guest, and does the install succeed if you bump the memory up by quite a bit?

Comment 4 Kashyap Chamarthy 2010-07-12 05:08:18 UTC
1024MB RAM. I'm trying with 2048MB as we speak, will report back the result.
And, 2 vcpus (on a quad-code machine) .My host has 10G RAM, so plenty available.

Comment 5 Kashyap Chamarthy 2010-07-12 05:39:19 UTC
Not much luck. I tried with both 2048MB and 3072 MB RAM and install still 'exits abnormally'

Comment 7 Ales Kozumplik 2010-07-12 08:51:07 UTC
Hi Kashyap,

can you please attach output of:

cat /sys/module/kvm_intel/parameters/ept

from the host?


Comment 8 Kashyap Chamarthy 2010-07-12 08:58:23 UTC
On the host:
root@~ $cat /sys/module/kvm_intel/parameters/ept 
root@~ $

Comment 9 Chris Lumens 2010-07-12 13:32:48 UTC
Marking this as a dup of a hidden bug.  The good news is there appears to be an updated kernel package in the works to fix it.
