Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122397
anaconda locks up on x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Description of problem:
On SK8V board from ASUSTeK after hitting <Return> at "boot:" prompt
anaconda starts the whole process, loads kernel and quickly locks up.
More detailed description of the hardware can be found in attachments
to a bug #122393.
The last alert which I can read on a screen says "Loading USB storage
driver" and after that something else flashes too quickly to read.
Everything ends up with a blue screen saying "Welcome to Fedora Core"
at the top and sits there without any further progress.
On a console number 3 the last messages say:
* module(s) ohci1394 not found
* going to rmmod usb-storage
and on the 4th one
<6> USB Mass Storage support registered
The only way around that which I found is to boot with 'linux nousb'
(not documented on help screens).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda from FC2T3 installation media
Every time I tried
