Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213348
Anaconda can't find driver?
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:38:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place FC-6-i386-disc1.iso in drive
2. Reboot computer
3. As anaconda runs, make selections for Language(English), Keyboard(US), and
Installation method(Local CDROM).
Actual results: At this point anaconda says: No driver found
Expected results: proceed with installation
Additional info: I'm puzzled as to why the installation program should fail to
recognise the drive (an ASUS DRW-1608P3S) at this stage of the process since it
must be using a driver to have got this far! Is this not correct? Nevertheless,
I went on to the next window (Select Device Driver to Load) and tried all the
drivers but without success. I'm not sure what to do from here.
What hardware is your system?
My system's motherboard is an Intel DP965LT. I had previously installed FC5 and
had the same problem along with another one to do with the generation of sound
(see Bugs 209203 and 209221). In a reply to one of the previous bug reports I
was advised that the bug would/might be sorted out in FC6. Unfortunately, the
FC6 installation is giving me the same two problems, but I will create another
bug report for the other.
