Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144938
Failure to install.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:58 EST
Description of problem:
Critical crash when installing FC3, I am a noob so can not offer a
greater description, however the installer advised me to post the
error here along with the crash dump.
Try to Install FC3 on my second harddrive, choose the default
installation settings. Note that FC2 installed fine (about 6 months
ago). Feel free to contact me for more info.
The crash dump is too large to attach, feel free to contact me via
email and I will send it over. It is a 1.25MB text file.
You should be able to attach it here. If it's too large, gzip it
first and then attach it.
Created attachment 109711 [details]
Zipped dump text from the installer crash
I have attached the dump text, I should also point out that I think the fault
is with my hard drive. It is pointing to a partitioning error, as I have tried
installing Debian as well (I am familiar with this installation) and it failed
on the installation process post partitioning.
I have ordered a new harddrive and will try the FC3 installation again once it
arrives (in a few days) and will post my results here.
Yeah, you're getting errors reading every sector of the drive in the
syslog. That points pretty definitively to the hard drive.
