no graphical install for fc5test3 on emac computer
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:25:40 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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unsure of exact version numbers, whatever the FC5T3 DVD shipped with.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot FC5T3 DVD, wait for attempt into graphical boot.
2. Switch virtual terminals to see error.
Failed installation method.
Graphical installation menu.
Here is the error, as best I could grab it:
Debug: sleeping function called from invalid context at arch/powerpc/kernel/traps.c:700
[DEF79EC0] [C0007A64] show_stack+0x54/0x184 (unreliable)

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...
