Description of problem:
Anaconda hangs on the 'Installing bootloader' step after installing packages

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc6-pre iso's

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Complete the system setup
2. Watch for the final configuration / bootloader windows to popup
Actual results:
The bootloader window sits there forever.

Expected results:
The bootloader should install

Additional info:
I switched VT's and grabbed this error message:

[A bunch of Anaconda paths listed]
... in WriteGrub (line # 947)
in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/executil.py, line 81 in ExecWithRedirect
OSError: No such file/folder.

Any errors on tty4?  As this means that we probably had an error reading/writing

Actually, hrmm... I wonder if this is related to some of the ext3 problems davej
has seen...
Comment 2 Stewart Adam 2006-10-04 17:11:48 EDT
Nope, no errors except the one I posted above. I formatted a ext3 partition for
/ during the install, incase it helps.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-10-05 10:50:14 EDT
How much memory does your machine have?

If this is referring to firstboot coming up with no text being able to be added
to create the default user, I have experienced this on a GUI install using 
linux xdriver=vesa 
as the argument to the installer.
Checkimg out errors marked as duplicates to a bug that I submitted.
Comment 7 Stewart Adam 2006-10-09 19:41:07 EDT
Nope, this is different - My system never even gets to firstboot, it freezes on
the bootloader installation on the Anaconda installer CDs. (Well, in my case, DVD)
