Description Eli Collins 2006-08-16 16:14:36 EDT
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.
Comment 1 Eli Collins 2006-08-17 13:47:30 EDT
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
