Description Herbert Straub 2006-03-06 06:50:26 EST
Description of problem:

I' try to install Fedora Core 5 Test 3 on a HP Blade (amd64) via the HP ILO
Remote Console (Firefox with Java). After the installation started, it
terminates with "insatll exited abnormally" (see the attached screenshot). I got
a similar error with Ubuntu, but i fixed this error with a special VGA setting
(see https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/debian-installer/+bug/32714).
If i remember correctly, then i had installed Test2 without problems (but, I'm
not sure).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect the Iso Image (disk 1) via virtual media
2. Reset and Boot
3. Start the installation and after the first questions (language,..), the
installation stops

Actual results:

Expected results:

Does the ilo stuff provide a usb cd device?  If so, this should be fixed post-test3
Comment 3 Herbert Straub 2006-03-08 07:52:20 EST
I don't know what you exactly want do know. I try the same installation and
there is an Message "Loading usb-storage driver". Then i will be asked
"language", "keyboard", "Installation method" (local cdrom). The the
installation starts and write "PS/2 mouse ..." and "..md driver..". I cannot
easy catch the detailed messages, because i can only catch a screenshot (i don't
know other method).

But i configured the remote console hot keys and switched after this error
message to console ALT-F4 and see the last message is a segfault at ... I attach
the second screenshot with the error screen.

Yeah, this is the segfault from USB CD drives that I fixed after test3
