no console on normal install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
Can't Ctrl-Alt-F2 to virtual console on install
I used to be able to do this in fedora core test 3
I just can a blank screen with a blinking cursor
in the top left.
Machine is a Dell poweredge 1750
This works fine here. Did you have 'noshell' on your boot command line?
nope. Works fine on my P4 laptop actually.
However I've now got an error message from the 2xP4 1750
relocation error: -/bin/sh: symbol , version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in
file libc.so.6 with link time reference
the sh on rescue mode executes fine
Have you checked your media with the built-in mediacheck?
I experienced this probleem too. Try booting with the option "linux
allowcddma". See Bugzilla Bug 109462 for details.
Does this occur on newer releases?
Actually I've just installed FC1 on that machine last week.
So that must have been fixed between FC1_test3 and release?
Maybe it's intermittent?
