Description darkfrog 2005-06-15 18:00:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When I do an installation of Fedora Core 3 or 4 on this specific machine (it's somewhat older, but other flavors install fine) everything completes successfully but at the end of the installation during Post Install it throws an exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1137, in handleRenderCallback
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 244, in renderCallback
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 873, in nextClicked
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 174, in gotoNext

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 1204, in doPostInstall
  stdout = devnull)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iutil.py", line 53, in execWithRedirect
  raise RuntimeError, command + " can not be run"
RuntimeError: /usr/sbin/kudzu can not be run

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3 and 4 (release)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 3 or 4 from CDs (from ISO images) - images work on other machines without problems
2. Any installation of packages will reproduce this, but I am trying to do a mimimalistic installation.
3. Installation runs through without any problems until the Post Install process and then it throws the Exception mentioned in "Description"

Actual Results:  The Exception mentioned in "Description" - I then lose mouse support, but am able to scroll through the information with my keyboard. If I go to "Debug" the monitor goes to standbye mode and essentially is dead.

When I reboot the machine I get the LILO screen, but am not proficient enough with LILO to manually configure it.

Expected Results:  ...installation was a success? :-p

Additional info:

I have tried changine memory out, changing CDROM drives, video card, etc.  The only things that have remained consistently has been the motherboard and hardrive.

I was hoping that Fedora Core 4 would have addressed this issue, but apparently not.  I have confirmed that the CDs are good and work on other machines. I know it's a hardware issue that is causing this, I'm just not sure exactly what it is or the work-around.

Hardrive - 40gig IDE Western Digital
Motherboard - P4VXASD with an Intel P4 1.4GHz CPU
Memory - 384MB (in two chips - swapped between the two without any change)
Video - RIVA128 (also tried with a Creative Labs CT6610)
Keyboard - Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard
Mouse - Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer Wireless

Consolidating into the one bug report that's getting more detailed information.
