Description of problem:
I downloaded FedoraCore3test3 from local mirror and burned it to DVD.
I tested DVD in two machines and it looks like OK. Installer working
and I can split partitions and select packages for installation.
Installer, in last step, format hdd1 as "root(/)" and hdd5 as swap.
hdd1 ext3 19GB
hdd5 swap 1GB
Now, installer begin copying installation image to disk. But in quater
of this operation, progress bar stops. Error: "Can't copy installation
image to disk...." "There is probably not enough free space on disk..."
I can not install fedora. It looks like demaged DVD, but it looks OK -
Anaconda says "TEST: PASSED".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from FC3test3 DVD
2.Select components for installation
3.Wait for installer to copy "install image" to HDD
Actual Results: Installer con not copy installation image to disk.
HDD is formated, but nothing on it.
Does booting with 'linux ide=nodma' help?
Anaconda working OK with "linux ide=nodma"
Installed system working OK with DMA.
But I don't know why Anaconda doesn't work with DMA enabled?!
This was repaired in final FC3. Installer working done!
