Description Tim Pepper 2004-07-02 22:57:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5.1) Gecko/20031120 Description of problem: After getting around the FC2 graphical install hanging after video/monitor probe with a 'linux headless' install, I'm having the install hang still later with the status bar stuck at 50% "Performing post install configuration." I can switch to virtual consoles, but cannot input anything. Keyboard led's are responsive. VC three shows a few mundane messages from the install at the top of the screen. At the bottom it shows: * rhgb installed, adding to boot loader config * moving (1) to step postinstallconfig * No pcic controller detected * self.hostname = mbox.my.domain.com * isys.py:mount()- going to mount /usbfs on /mnt/sysimage/proc/bus/usb I haven't found any boot options that appear to make any difference. I've tried apm=off, noapic, noprobe, skipddc, acpi=off, pci=noacpi, smp/up, mem=128M, nofirewire, nousb, nopcmcia. Rebooting shows it hasn't installed grub yet. Manually doing that from a rescue boot gives me a really unhappy unconfigured system. The root password hasn't been set (and I can't set it...selinux wierdness?). I have successfully then done an upgrade of the mostly installed system with just 'linux headless' and the install completes, but aside from installing a few packages that were already installed, it doesn't change anything. The system boots but it seems like that 50% post install missing does some important configuration. Also, RHAS3 installs/runs just fine on this machine, FWIW. It is an IBM Intellistation Z Pro, model 6221-42U. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install FC2. 2. 3. Additional info:

Does this still happen with FC3 test releases?

Just to confirm, this no long happened on FC3.
