Description Jed Kivi 2000-09-20 22:28:13 UTC
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.

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 21:52:23 UTC
Could you try an expert install and see if it helps?

Comment 4 Jed Kivi 2000-10-09 17:28:11 UTC
the above information was in expert mode, but I installed rh7 just fine on the
same box.
