Description of problem:
pentium m 1.7 Ghz on laptop
512 mb ram
60gb hard disk
error in installation procedure after formatting the root partition
and swap.. show possible error could be insufficient disk space.The
partition size is 4 gb and size of the to be installed was varied
from 1.6 to 2.5 gb .partition information
hda2 linux-root ext3 4 gb
hda1 windows ntfs 3gb
hda7 vfat 10gb
hda3 swap 900mb
hda4 ext3 10gb
hda5 vfat 12gb
hda6 vfat 14 gb
the sizes are not exact.Under the same conditons and partitions i am
able to install red hat linux 9.0 without any problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora core release "yarrow"
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot through fedora core release yarrow
2.try to install in graphical or text mode
3.the installer shows the error irrespective of options selected once
the root partition is formatted
Actual Results: can't install possible errors .. insufficient disk
Expected Results: smooth install which is the case with redhat 9.0
it is known that fedora core release "severn" is installed on the
same machine with a pentium M 1.6 with a ram of 1gb smoothly so there
is no reason to fail with this configuration
Does booting wiht 'linux allowcddma' help?
I dont know if the boot option "linux allowcddma" you suggested will
work and i can't attempt to try it again because now the system is
fully configured with "severn" and it works perfectly and i am trying
to upgrade few packages.So i wonder if what is broken from release
severn to release yarrow in anaconda.
There are some lingering problems with large data transfers on some CD
devices. Dupe of multiple others.
I hope that is the only problem and booting with the options mentioned
will work in such cases.Anyway Thanks for the advice.
