Description Mitchell Lewandowski 2006-02-26 19:31:48 EST
Description of problem:
The graphical installation of Core 5 Test 3 on my powerpc emac (1 GHz) fails with what appears to be a 
kernel exception.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unsure of exact version numbers, whatever the FC5T3 DVD shipped with.

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot FC5T3 DVD, wait for attempt into graphical boot.
2. Switch virtual terminals to see error.
Actual results:
Failed installation method.

Expected results:
Graphical installation menu.

Additional info:
Here is the error, as best I could grab it:

Debug: sleeping function called from invalid context at arch/powerpc/kernel/traps.c:700
in_atomic():0, irqs_disabled():1
Call Trace:
[DEF79EC0] [C0007A64] show_stack+0x54/0x184 (unreliable)

--- Exception: 700 at 0xf29318c
    LR = 0xf293814

Let me know if I can get you any additional information ... running the text install now, so if that is 
successful, I should be able to get you revisions of hardware, etc...
