Description Jed Kivi 2000-09-20 18:28:13 EDT
machine locks up once anaconda is started.

sysconfig is as follows

pcmcia net card ( tried with pcmcia, and boot images )
192M ram
128M swap
10G HD 
ATI mach64 ( tried both the text and graphical install )

Try another attempt, but keep switching back to virtual console 3 so you can see
what the last message
it outputs is. That will help us tell where it is hanging.
Comment 2 Jed Kivi 2000-10-04 13:18:20 EDT
switched to console 3, locks up right after looking for IDE floppys, tried
turning off secondary IDE channel, once I got partialy into the install but then
it bailed, I haven't been able to repeat that.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-06 17:52:23 EDT
Could you try an expert install and see if it helps?
Comment 4 Jed Kivi 2000-10-09 13:28:11 EDT
the above information was in expert mode, but I installed rh7 just fine on the
same box.
