Description Mick Tantasirikorn 2000-08-07 12:37:27 EDT
On a Dell Inspiron 7500
CPU 500MHz
Mem: 64MB

The CD installation Hangs on the Language selection screen only for Text 
Install; however it works for GUI install.
I can't go to other virtual console to look at outputs.

The NFS installation works fine.

here is the lspci -v of the system

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2000-08-08 11:20:23 EDT
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-16 18:00:18 EDT
I cannot reproduce this on my Inspiron 7500
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-21 16:17:25 EDT
Have you tried this on any other Inspirons?  Tried different
CDROM drives?  If not, I'm going to call this a hardware
problem and close it as WORKSFORME.

Text based install is now functioning normally in RC2.
Comment 5 Dan Taylor 2000-08-28 18:44:12 EDT
