Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206569
unmounting reiserfs oopses
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:28:38 EST
Description of problem:
I run the dvd. Media check ok. Anaconda starts, choose language (English),
choose keyboard (tried Finnish-latin1 and U.S.) ->searching for partitions. I
see the blue ring going under the mouse pointer but it won't advance from this
point. I tried to reboot and it happens over and over again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Hardware: AMD 2700+ nVidia nForce2 chipset MSI K7N2Delta motherboard, Western
Digital 200GB hard drive as slave disk on master bus. And Sony DVD-RW drive on
secondary master. ATI Radeon 9600 displaycard (AGP).
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Media check ok, choose languange + keyboard -> searching for Fedora Core
installations (there is a previos installation of FC6Test2 (among others) on
3.I see the mouse pointer (which can be moved by mouse) and the blue ring movin
under it. Installation won't go further.
Installation won't go forward
Next installation step
My HD may be corrupted etc. But bottom line is, I think there is a flaw that
prevents the installation from continuing under some circumstances at this step.
Do you have any reiserfs filesystems? Can you switch to tty4 and see if there
is a kernel oops there?

i had a reiserfs and it crashed. i deleted all my linux partitions using fdisk
in tty2. after writing in fdisk it didn't go back to the shell.
after a hard reset anaconda proceeded to the next installation step.

To answer the question about raiserfs; I only have 2 normal ext3 partitions plus
a swap partition on this drive. It boots ok to Freespire and FC6Test2 partitions.
