Description Thomas M Steenholdt 2004-10-21 16:08:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
When installing FC3 test 3 with the "linux reiserfs" option and
creating /boot and / filesystems as reiserfs, everything will appear
to work normally until the tile where installer will actually make the
filesystems, then it just hangs. It's not a hard hang or anything like
that, it just doesn't proceed!

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install using "linux reiserfs"
2. select auto partition and change the suggested filesystems to reiserfs
3. continue install until filesystem creation occurs


Actual Results:  Installation is stuck

Expected Results:  Installation should create the filesystems and proceed

Additional info:

I used the DVD version of the FC3 test 3 install. I DID do a mediascan
and it passed!

Adding 'selinux=0' to your boot parameters will fix it.  This should
be fixed with the policy shipped in the final release.
