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): anaconda-18.8 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.

Created attachment 618808 [details] anaconda log, taken at time of freeze Since I'm getting it too, here's my anaconda.log

Created attachment 618812 [details] storage.log 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.

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.

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!
