Description of problem:
When performing a new Fedora Core 3 installation utilizing the linux
xfs option, the installation hangs during the finalization process.
During the installation, I chose to make all the partitions, except
Oddly, after the first installation attempt fails you can perform a
second attempt and the installation is then successful.
All of my installations were on disks that previously had other
files system types like ext3, or ufs2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3 Release
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt a fresh installation of Fedora Core 3 using the linux xfs
Actual Results: The install appears to hang after install the xfs
utilities on disk 4.
Expected Results: The installer should have finished the final
installation routine, and asked the user to reboot.
I had the same results on three seperate systems, attempting the
installation a number of times on each. I also downloaded and created
a new set of disks and had the same results. Both sets of disks
passed the media tests on a number of different computers.
