anaconda-installer stalls with text based install (minstg2.img)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:23 EST
Description of problem:
Installer hangs at 98% while displaying 'Retrieving installation information...'
This happens when 'text' is specified in kickstart file and minstg2.img is used
instead of stage2.img. This is a image installed as a XEN-guest.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-10.91.14-1 (I think)
# md5sum minstg2.img
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install text only install of current rawhide
Stalls at 98%
This line is logged to syslog with anaconda:
INFO Warning, could not load sqlite, falling back to pickle
With stage2.img this is logged:
The line above does not appear, and the installer goes on with:
INFO primary sqlite cache needs updating, reading in metadata
This should be better for tomorrow.
