Description of problem:
System reboots under RH Linux 9 and kernel 2.4 is only selection in
grub, which shows Fedora banner.  upgrade.log only contains the text
below between the "cut here" lines:
------------------------------cut here-------------------------
Upgrading 615 packages

The following packages were automatically
selected to be installed:
Upgrade: XFree86 was on the system.  Pulling in xterm for upgrade.
Upgrade Dependency: Needs (('galeon', '1.2.7', '3'), ('mozilla',
'35:1.2.1'), 8,
 None, 0), automatically added.
Upgrade Dependency: Needs (('gq', '0.4.0', '3'), ('libcom_err.so.3',
None), 0, N
one, 0), automatically added.
Upgrade Dependency: Needs (('php-manual', '4.2.2', '17'), ('php',
'4.2.2-17'), 8
, None, 0), automatically added.

Upgrading libgcc-3.3.3-7.i386.
------------------------------cut here-------------------------

I was not able to pause before reboot with the pause key, so I could
not tell if the installer crashed or what.  I could not see any
indication of an error.  It would be nice if there was a "press return
to continue..." message just before reboot when installing.

I tried twice with the same result.  This is on a Dell Latitude CPi
laptop.  This is the first time I tried to install any Fedora release,
but all previous versions of redhat from 6.0 to 9.0 had no problems.

Pls advise.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run installer, select upgrade

Actual Results:  System is not upgraded.

Expected Results:  System should be upgraded to Fedora Core 2, kernel 2.6.

Can you verify your media according to the instructions at

Comment 2 Don Beusee 2004-06-21 18:09:53 UTC
Sorry - I forgot to add that I did that and it PASSed.

Comment 3 Don Beusee 2004-06-28 23:17:30 UTC
Is there any other troubleshooting I can do?  Can I somehow fix it to
run an xterm when the installer dies instead of rebooting?  Can I
start up the GUI installer manually somwhow?
I just ran "linux text" to install using text mode and it seems to be
working.  So the problem is with the GUI installer.
