Anaconda stops after keyboard language screen (Same as closed bug 206967)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
When I click next on the keyboard language page in anaconda-installer the
install hangs. If I remove my IDE harddrive it gets past the keyboard language
page but then I dont have any disk to install on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 6 DVD
Every time I try to install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose graphical install
2.Use English as system language
3.Use Swedish as keyboard language and click next on keyboard language page
I should get to the next page in the installer
It seems to get past the page if I dont have any IDE drives connected. I have a
Nvidia Nforce 2 motherboard, 1.5gb ram, nvidia geforce 5200 128mb, 80gb IBM
harddrive. I hade the same problem in FC6test2 and FC6test3 my bug report for
that was closed but the problem seems to still be there.
Are you seeing kernel panic messages on tty3?
I dont see kernel panic if that is a specific warning in tty3. I do see;
Warning /usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py:1112: PangoWarning: error loading GPOS table 4097
I dont know if this helps but the hardrive has Ububtu 6.10 Knot 3 on it and I
dont know what filesystem it has.
I just tried it with an other harddrive that had no filesystem on it and it
works. Seems to be a problem only if I have used it for ubuntu-desktop first. If
I would have know this I wuld have wiped the disk with some other tool.
So its kinda fixed but still maybe a problem for some. I dont now what
filesystem ubuntu uses but its the default installation of ubuntu-desktop on the
disk that refuse to install.
