Description of problem:
On a HP DL385 with AMD 275 Dual Core CPU the system hangs up during a
pxe/kickstart installation at different points.
The machine has 2 GB memory and two (hw-mirrored) 72GB SCSI disks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 5 Test 3
do a pxe/kickstart installtion
Steps to Reproduce:
1. PXE Boot
2. use Boot with 'ks'
3. select eth0 as installation interface
hung during formatting or during Package Installation (not always
the same packet, e.g. chkconfig or gcc-lib)
successfull kickstart installation
The problem occurs both with nfs or http installation.
I tried it with different ramdisk sizes
Note that the last transfered package as seen on the httpd log
was glibc-2.3.90-37.i686.rpm but the console screen shows
chkconfig-1.3.27-1-x86_64 als current installaed package
Fedora Core 4 installation works without problems on this system.
sorry, I send this bug twice due to a strange error-message on the website
saying something "t is not a valid product/version or so.
Use bug #183980, which contains an attachment with more doku, too.
