Problem description:

I downloaded the 12/27 boot.iso file for i386 on 2 different systems and 
burned 2 CD's.  Both fail the same after I select "linux askmethod vnc" for 
the install method.  First they pause for about three minutes, then the 
following.  A boot.iso CD from 12/16 works fine on the same system.

If this is a customer issue, please indicate the impact to the customer:
  Can't install via linux askmethod vnc on i386.

Hardware Environment
    Machine type (p650, x235, SF2, etc.): x335

Is this reproducible?  Yes
    If so, how long does it (did it) take to reproduce it? 10 minutes
    Describe the steps:

1. Download and burn the boot.iso file from:

2. Put the CD in the system to be installed and reboot or power off/on.

3. When the screen prompts for the install method, type "linux askmethod vnc"
and enter.  

Is the system (not just the application) hung? Yes
    If so, describe how you determined this: Screen is frozen; must power 
off/on to continue.

Did the system produce an OOPS message on the console?  See description above.
Is the system sitting in a debugger right now?  No.

Similar problem with the 12/28 x84_64 boot.iso using both "linux askmethod 
vnc" and "linux askmethod":

Using an x86_64 boot.iso from 1/3 I am not getting the same thing as described 
previously, but it just gets to "loading initrd.img .. " and hangs. This isn't 
getting as far as the previous problem.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2006-01-04 23:45:27 UTC
fixed several days ago.

it's fairly pointless reporting bugs in week old trees when the kernel is
changing daily without trying to reproduce with the current one.

This bug was written last week but not forwarded to RH until this week; 
probably due to holidays.  At the time it was written on the current build 
after trying several days in a row.  Shouldn\'t installation be tested?

Today I successfully installed the 1/5/05 x86_64 rawhide using the boot.iso 
with no problem.  I don\'t have an i386 system available right now to try, but 
will assume that boot.iso also works.
