Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:23 EST
Description of problem:
I'm trying a PXE/Kickstart installation of Fedora Core 5 Test2 for a
soekris 4801-50 box (www.soekris.com) with a 40GB Harddisk.
The process always stops in the 'Installation Progress' Windows
with 'Retrieving installation information' 92%.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reset box
2. boot via pxe (boot F0)
3. enter ks in boot-menue
4. select eth0 as ethernet interface
installation stops at 92% during Retrieving installation information'

grub, kickstart files, serial console protocol
Known issue due to no python sqlite in http/ftp image, fixed in rawhide. A
workaround for fc5t2 is to use nfs.
