I'm not reproducing this with today's rawhide... can you try again?
Comment 2 Ricky Ng-Adam 2005-05-18 22:33:06 EDT
Same problem with anaconda- Did you mean something more recent?

I forgot to mention that I'm testing by PXE Boot / network install.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-19 15:00:45 EDT
Bumped the amount of RAM we require for the graphical stage2.  It's working for
me, but it's clearly sort of at the border for working.
Comment 4 Ricky Ng-Adam 2005-05-20 19:42:09 EDT
Are you saying that from now on, it will not be possible to use the
install on this computer even when graphical install for FC4 was working ok up

Is this something that is going to be fixed or something that will
never work again?

And when you say bumped up the amount of RAM, do you mean in a check in
anaconda?  Because anaconda- still gives the same error,
both in graphical and text install.

Why exactly is it not working anymore? Is it because hdlist2 has gotten too big?
