Description Stig Nielsen 2004-09-21 13:32:45 EDT
Description of problem:
First try:
Format hda5,hda6 & hda7. Installation stalls while formatting 
/dev/hda5. X seems to be running ok, no problem entering terminal 
window (Ctrl-Alt-F1)

Second try:
Didn't format any drives - Install stalls after selecting packages

Third try:
choose default selections exept for disk partitioning - Same as 
second try

Please let me know if I can retry and gather some information for you 
- Never had any problems during install so I don't know where to 
look. Works ok with Mandrake 10.0 both before and after

Installed from DVD (md5sum checked - OK)
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-21 14:07:43 EDT
If you switch to tty2 at that point, can you run commands?  If so, can
you cat /proc/meminfo?
Comment 3 Stig Nielsen 2004-09-22 00:17:48 EDT
Yes everything seems to work at that runlevel.

Some logs posted

Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-23 19:21:13 EDT
What did you select for your selinux setting?  If you boot with
'selinux=0', does it help?
Comment 10 Stig Nielsen 2004-09-23 20:35:59 EDT
Thanks, That seems to do the trick. I stopped it before the install 
image was fully transferred to the harddisk, let me know if you want 
me to do more tests for the sake of a solution.
