Description of problem:
I am doing an install from DVD onto an dual core athlon machine. I am
using the x86_64 version of FC5 test 2.
The install consistantly hangs while trying to install the
xorg-x11-drivers-0.99... rpm file.
I have tried doing an install where I manually partitioned
the file system - no raid and no lvm. I have also tried using
all default settings for a new install. I have also tried
manually removing several big packages (I dont recall which ones).
All of these failed.
The hardware is an NForce4 based motherboard and the OS is being
installed onto two SATA drives.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load x86_64 dvd
2. start install - accept all default choices
3. install will hang
Actual Results: Install stops with message on the screen saying that
the RPM is going to be installed.
Expected Results: installation should have happened.
Where did you get your DVD image from? Have you run media check to verify that
the media is okay? When it hangs on installing this package, can you switch
over to tty3 and tty4 (ctrl-alt-f3 and ctrl-alt-f2) and see if there are any
interesting error messages?
Please ignore this ticket. After swapping in a single core athlon 64,
doing a full install (64bit fc5 test2) and then again putting the
orginal dual core back into the mother board and doing anothe install
everything is working now.
Closing based on comment #2.
