fedora 26 server installation problem
Last modified: 2017-09-29 17:23:42 EDT
Description of problem:
While trying to install from usb on a 250gb ssd with 500gb regular HD, with all my important partitions (/root / boot /usr /home) ready formatted, I get same error over and over, immediately after starting install of fedora 26 server..
[ok] Reached target basic system
[11.237957] i2c i2c-3: sendbytes: NAK bailout.
i2c i2c-3: sendbytes: NAK bailout.
then a long time waiting
then repeated message:
... warning dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts
in journalctl there are some lines in red indicating problems with iscsi daemon and failure to open rpcbind.conf and again i2c i2c-3: sendbytes: NAK bailout
i have no idea
Sounds like an installer bug. I'm moving this to Anaconda for triage into the correct underlying component.
I have been able to install ubuntu desktop 16.4 on the ssd. so the file system is ok.. now I want and need to get that greatest new fedora server on that file system. ubuntu sees the root partition as /root... fedora wants to have it as /dev/root. I can get root access in ubuntu.. I am going to try to make the path /root refer to /dev/root
I have manually created a /dev/root dir... then I used ln -s to make a link from /dev/root to /root.. then tried fedora install.. doesn't seem to help
It looks to me like a HW driver error.
Reassigning to kernel, maybe they will know more.
Created attachment 1312309 [details]
tried again today to install... the /dev/root/ was gone somehow, so I again under root privilige created /dev/root and changed permissions to o+RW, so anyone could use it, including fedora installer... but fedora runs into same errors... I have included the /run/initram/rdsosreport.txt Im not sure how to read this.. will look back tomorrow..
just did one reboot and the /dev/root folder is gone for some unknown reason..
still working on this.. i have a working installation now, meaning fedora 26 boots and gets to the desktop environment. but the system does not want to recognize my tp-link 851bn wifi card. probably a driver problem. according to tp-link this card is not supported for linux, but I had a ubuntu installation earlier where it did work. can I port the ubuntu wifi driver if I could find it in ubuntu. or if anyone has the driver for me because the ubuntu install is gone??
never mind ive found a solution.. --> ticket close
can you unclose this?
the problem persists.. need wifi implementation like this card has worked in ubuntu
I need some directives to get my network devices turn up in the network config.. I have atheros chips for wifi and gigabit in lspci.. but they are not in nm-connection-editor
I have run lspci -k and it shows:
Atheros Gigabit adapter: kernel driver in use ATL1E
and for wifi
Atheros AR9227 Wireless Network adapter: kernel driver ath9k
but no active or choosable network adapter in network config settings
I have run /etc/init.d/network start and it gives failure. result exit-code
no exit-code specified
