Description Roy-Magne Mo 2006-02-04 22:12:50 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
d339438a24064c484aa70c65d24fb6c0  minstg2.img

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install text only install of current rawhide
Actual results:
Stalls at 98%

Expected results:

Additional info:
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
