Description Chris Eveleigh 2006-03-14 06:44:57 EST
Description of problem:
on my HP DL380 G3, running a clean FC5test3 install fails after the filesystems
are formatted and a few packages have been installed.  Nothing seems to crash -
i can still ctrl-alt-F2 and do a 'top' or 'ps'.  it looks like the install
process is blocked in the disk driver (cciss) - the disks are idle.

i have only been able to install FC5test3 (on this system) by installing FC4 and
then doing a yum upgrade.  now if i let it boot with 2.6.15-1.1955-FC5smp it
will make it through to the login screen but hang (again, it's not crashed, just
blocked) shortly after that.  If i use 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4smp it appears to be fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  2.6.15-1.1955-FC5smp

How reproducible: install FC5test3

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run a clean install (i've tried nfs and CD) (also tried upgrade from FC4)
2. all default options (i've also tried disabling ACPI and selinux and LVM)
Actual results:
install blocks during packages install

Expected results:
install completes

this works in FC5 release.

by the way, can confirm that PXE/NFS/VNC install works okay.
