Description Jim Cornette 2006-03-10 19:09:21 UTC
Description of problem:
Anaconda proceeds as far as a screen where a file can be saved to floppy. The
floppy did not contain information when files "saved" to floppy.
I did however find the file in /root directory of the system which I tried to

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

How reproducible:
Select upgrade after the installer finds the existing installation.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installer
2. Get as far as a dump
3. Change to Screen 2 and look around for information.
Actual results:
Found information in several files. Outputted information via serial port to file.

Expected results:
Installation successful

Additional info:

I was testing the installer out because of a comment regarding a blank screen in
the installer using an Intel 865G video which I also have.
I did not get a blank screen but the dump. The kernel module for the i910 was
loaded and drm failed.

We've added better error handling post test3 for this.

ttyS0 output

This is serial output for the kernel booting, various files contained in the
/tmp directory of the system installer environment.
The upgrade.log in the failed to upgrade system was blank and zero bytes with
date upgrade attempted.

Captions are echoed into the serial output and seperated by a blank line for
each file or log I echoes to ttyS0

Hopefully FC5 will install.
