Description mjm 1999-11-09 05:21:38 UTC
I recently downloaded the iso image for Redhat 6.1 from ftp.redhat.com. I then made a CD from the image. The installation goes well until about half way through. I select a custom installation and select the packages I want to install (KDE, GNOME, Development, Apache, etc). After that the installation installs all the needed packages. When it gets to 100%, it pops up a dialog box, stating "performing post install". This dialog box never goes away and the installation freezes at this point (I can move my mouse around but the installation doesn't proceed any). I am installing this on the following system: * ASUS P5A motherboard * AMD K6-2 500 MHZ * 64 MB RAM * AWE 64 Sound Card * 3Com 3C905B * 3dfx Voodoo3 3000 AGP

Once you get the freeze, flip over through the virtual consoles (hit <ctrl><alt><F1> through <F4>) and post any messages that you happen to find there. You will probably see something which looks like an error message, talking about a traceback. ------- Additional Comments From 11/10/99 01:49 ------- Since I couldn't get this to work, I tried to install Rehdat 6.0. The Redhat 6.0 didn't freeze; however, it had problems detecting my plug and play devices and assigning IRQs/IO ranges. I then looked in my BIOS and noticed the option for Plug and Play support was disabled. After enabling it, Redhat 6.0 detected all my devices fine. I then tried to install Redhat 6.1; I formatted my ext2 partitions and it installed flawlessly. However, if I disabled Plug and Plug support in the BIOS, the install would freeze.
