Graphical install hangs after "Install anyway"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
When installing on a dell 1800 from CDs anaconda hangs (blank screen with busy
cursor) after selecting the "Instally anyway" button. This is 100% reproducible.
I tried booting with noacpi to no avail. I also tried the text installer and
that coughed up ascii garbage.
The system had opensuse 10.1 installed with reiserfs.
I deleted all the disk partitions and now the install no longer hangs.
Previously it would hang for at least 15 minutes, and would require a hard
reset, would not respond to ctrl-alt-backspace or delete.
There was a bug with reiserfs in the kernel in test2
