Description of problem:
I've just tried to install Fedora Core 3 Test 2 on my PC (Board: MSI
865PE Neo2-PFISR, P4C 2.8 GHz, HT on, Geforce 4) and anaconda hangs
everytime when it starts to copy tha packages.
the last line on alt-F2 is trying to mount none on /dev/pts
(i dont know how to get the rest of the errors... is there a way to
get the logfiles?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC3 Test
2. Choose default options
Actual Results: Anaconda Crashed
i tried to install it on a reiserfs partition but it happened with
i've tried several other Linux Distros on this PC but none of them
worked fine. (Windows XP has no problems)
Do you have any reiserfs filesystems?
i had ubuntu linux installed before, but i've told anaconda to
completely delete the partitions (both swap and /) and recreate them,
and i saw the reiser format message (completed successfully) on one of
those console windows (i think Alt-F4 or F5)
i have 2 other partitions with NTFS (from Windows XP) on this PC
The reiser format or an ext3 format message?
reiser... it said something like created journal.
(dont have the messages at hand, but if you can tell me how to get an
error/install log i could post it here)
i didnt look at the log when i've tried ext3 but since it stopped at
the same position it souldnt be FS related
whe i formated with reiser, i didnt create an ext3 partition, just
hdb2 in reiser and hdb3 as swap (hdb1 and [i forgot the name, but it
wasnt hda, maybe sda or something like this] is ntfs)
If you're using reiserfs, you also need to pass selinux=0.
