From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4
Description of problem:
"linux noparaport nopcmcia lowres askmethod text"
Proceeds as expected through preinstall sequence, except my monitor was unrecognised. It still worked just fine. But was listed as UNKNOWN. I didn't wory abou this till I installed FC4 32 bit I disabled SELinux because I thought it might be a problem (see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=92576).
Install proceeds as expected.
The "Preforming post install processing" message comes up.
Just as the progress indicator gets to 50% I get the message
"Error sending status request (Option not permitted)".
Almost instantaneously, I get the CONGRATS screen with a reboot button.
When I reboot, it goes like I'd expect initially but hangs with a flashing cursor on a new line.
the last few lines displayed are
EXT2-fs Warning (device hda6): ext2_fill_super: mounting ext3 filesystem as ext2
VFS: Mounted root (ex2 filesystem) read only
Freeing unused kernel memory: 196K freed
Warning: unable to open initial console.
SeLinux: Disable at runtime
SELinux: Unregistering netfilter hooks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start installation of Fedora FC4 x86_64
2.Complete preinstall operation
3.Let Post install fail
Actual Results: Boot process hangs up.
Expected Results: I expected to be able to successfully boot into Fedora Core - 4 OS.
I still have the failed install on a partition of my HD. Tell me where to look and what you want. Be gentle - I'm a newbie.
Can you attach the /root/install.log file from your installed system to this bug
Created attachment 123646 [details]
Root/install.log of failed X86_64 intsallation.
Somehow I posted the wrong fedoraforum thread in the original report. This one
is the one I intended to post -
It has much more detailed information in it.
Please try FC5T3 and let me know if it works better for you.
I don't know about FC5T3 x86_64 - but I'm writing this from FC5T2. It installed
with no problem in Graphic mode but couldn't find the ?Metadata? in text mode.
At any rate it would apear that the FC4 problem has been corrected in FC5.
