Last modified: 2008-02-21 00:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
Tried installing locally and through http and ftp but no go. Install stops at
prompt which warns about Fedora being a test release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start install process
2.Choose any method
3.When asked to choose install anyway
System hangs no further activity
Should continue with install
Motherboard - ECS L7VTA rev 1.0
CPU - AMD Athlon XP 2000
Memory - Corsair XMS P2700 - 512mb
Video Card - ATI 9600pro 256mb
Tried 2 different types of memory, nvidia video card and checked install discs
Tried different systems and worked ok.
What is previously on teh disks?
Fedora Core 5 Rawhide
I have the same problem with local install. When he has found CDs on a directory
(on my computer), anaconda starts but crashes after the warning. It appears the
box "finding previous Fedora Core installs" half a second, and all disappear,
except the mouse (with the blue circle continuing moving).
When I type [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[F1], I have (after "starting anaconda" and all these
strings) something like: "Installation exited abnormally [1/1]".
When I try to restart X (on tty2 : killing process and starting /usr/bin/Xorg),
it fails after few seconds, indicating he can't find a font, or something like
that. Maybe another bug.
541When I grow the CDs and starts the install process with the CDs, I get the
same error. I deleted the old partition containing FC5 (that didn't work,
anyway), and always the same error. In text mode, I get strange words (letters i
can't reproduce: greek, cyrillic, ...) before it chrashes with "Install exited
Also an AMD, but a 64-bit processor (so i use the x86_64 ISOs)
Nearly the same video card: ATI Radeon 9600 XT 256mb
'Hope this will help.
I ran into this error, an managed to get by it by deleting all partitions from
the disk first before launching the installer.
I have done no customization, and chosen the defaults. Since there were no
partitions on the disk, I asked the installer to delete all partitions and
create the default layout.
That got the further, but then, the installation stopped at the step where it
loads the install image to the disk. The error log indicates this critical error:
CRITICAL: error transferring stage2.img: [Errno 30] Read-only file system
Before this error, there are few others that caught my attention:
DEBUG: error reading swap label on /dev/VolGroup00: [Errno 21] ls a directory
This same error repeats for error reading xfs label, jfs label and reiserfs
label. After these four errors, I get:
INFO: trying to mount VolGroup00/LogVol00 on /
ERROR: could not create directory /mnt/sysimage//: File exists
Any ideas on how to get past this?
Sorry, forgot to mention my hardware:
Toshiba Tecra A4, 60 GB HDD, 512 RAM, ATI X600 (M22), Centrino chipset.
Shane - does your previous installation use reiserfs/xfs/jfs? When the system
stops updating, can you check tty1 and tty4 and see if there are any messages?
Also, is this still a problem in F7 test 2?
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

Fedora Core 6 is no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
