Description Sam Varshavchik 2000-07-22 21:51:48 UTC
beta4 GUI install, 07212000 boot image. Workstation install, gnome+kde+games. Networking configured as a static IP address, 126.96.36.199 - a private subnet. Hostname specified, primary DNS server set to 127.0.0.1. This configuration always worked in beta1 through beta3. About 1/5th of the way through 'post install' phase, it hangs for about 5-10 minutes without doing anything. This is reproducible for me, this happened again the second time I did this install. The first time, after rebooting /etc/issue was missing. The second time /etc/issue was initialized. Both times the hostname wasn't set, and defaulted to localhost.localdomain. When post installation hangs for 5-10 minutes, strace doesn't show anything interesting. A couple of straceable anaconda processes are waiting for I/O, the remaining anaconda processes are not straceable -- they're probably threads. Attachment showing ps output follows.
