Description Martin Enlund 2003-01-23 10:58:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030114 Description of problem: On my new Fujitsu S 6110 laptop both phoebe betas as of this date and RedHat null hangs when trying to install from cdrom. Syslinux/isolinux starts to boot the kernel but hangs indefinitely after printing ".....", ejecting the cd gives error messages and the machine reboots. I think it might have to do with this: ISOLINUX: Remove code no longer used which caused hangs on some Toshiba laptops. And that was fixed in version 1.76 of isolinux. I have had the same problem with debian, but I managed to install a version of debian via netboot so the problem must lie in the syslinux/isolinux part I think. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Insert RH cd 2. Boot 3. Press enter and wait... Actual Results: Hangs indefinitely. Expected Results: RH installation should boot the kernel and give me lots of installation choices. Additional info:

I have the same problem on a Pentium 4 Fujitsu-Siemens computer. After the first "enter" the boot process hangs with no further message but a blinking cursor.

Does this happen with current Fedora Core or rawhide releases?

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/. Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please open a new bug with the relevant information. Closing as CANTFIX.
