Description Jens Petersen 2012-09-26 01:01:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Live installs of F18 Alpha and later nightlies seem to stall for me
consistently at "Writing network configuration" when installing
over an existing Fedora installation.  Installing to a fresh disk
seems ok.  Rebooting into the unfinished install works!
(after waiting for anaconda disk activity to cease)

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F18 Live over an existing Fedora install
Actual results:
Installer get stuck near end on progress screen showing
"Writing network configuration".

Expected results:
Install to finish normally.

Additional info:
Also happens with anaconda-18.9.

But does not happen for net install.

What steps did you take that resulted in "installing over an existing Fedora installation"?
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2012-09-28 05:53:47 EDT
I just mean as in doing an install rather than an upgrade say.

Currently it would be an old F18 install for me.
I can also test over an old F17 install if it helps.
Comment 3 Brian Lane 2012-09-28 11:45:21 EDT
Please attach the logs from /tmp/*log during the install to this bug as individual text/plain attachments.

P.S. there really needs to be a way to upload multiple files at once :/

This is might have been a duplicate or similar to bug 860791.
Comment 10 Mike FABIAN 2012-10-12 06:42:59 EDT
I believe I see the same problem when trying to install Fedora-18-Beta-TC3-x86_64-netinst.iso into qemu. 

The logs seem to be the same as those attached by Eric above.
Comment 11 Kamil Páral 2012-10-15 08:04:53 EDT
I think this could be a duplicate of bug 862801. Please retest with F18 Beta TC4, thanks.
Comment 12 Mike FABIAN 2012-10-16 04:41:32 EDT
Works for me with F18 Beta TC4. Thank you!
Comment 13 Kamil Páral 2012-10-16 07:30:02 EDT
Then I believe it really is a duplicate.
