Description G. Krist 2003-11-19 11:10:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5)

Description of problem:
After the setup is done with formatting the setup will start to copy
with transfering the system images to the disc. An error will come up
saying that there is probably no space left on device (ofcourse there
is enough free) 

I will get some more info later, I have RH 9 running on it atm. But
will soon reinstall it.

Machine specification:
8 x 700mhz Xeon MP
4 gigz memory
2 x IBM 36 gigz  scsi discs
Adaptec SCSI card (64 bit pci)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from cd
2.do the usual setup stuff
3.it fails after the format of the partitions

Actual Results:  Error pops up with the message "that the installation
image tranfer" failed because there is probably no free disk space free" 

Expected Results:  �t should finish serup

Additional info:

I tried it with Redhat 9.0 and Redhat 9.0 CAN install on this machine!
So it's something in Fedora new setup it seems.

Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?

Comment 2 G. Krist 2003-11-20 08:12:20 UTC
Oke I tried "linux allowcddma", it then boots in text mode setup and
when it asks for "source" (CDROM/FTP/NFS) and I select "CDROM" it
tells me it can NOT find Fedora Core 1 cd.  

Comment 3 G. Krist 2003-11-20 08:50:09 UTC
Oke I tried to disable DMD by force using: linux ide=nodma.
Now it does work!
