Can you switch ttys when it hangs?  If so, what processes are running?
Comment 2 Robert Story 2006-04-19 11:34:07 EDT
yes, I remember switching ttys and running ybin manually. I didn't check for
running processes...
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2006-04-19 13:23:41 EDT
Can you attach the anaconda* and install logs under /root and /var/log as
seperate uncompressed attachments.
Comment 4 Robert Story 2006-04-19 18:17:38 EDT
there are not anaconda* logs in either /root or /var/log/.  Attaching install
