Description Matthew Davis 2006-11-07 23:05:41 EST
Description of problem:

In both X & text install methods, the installation freezes after launching
anaconda.  Really the only error message I see in alt + f3 is:

no /tmp/fcpconfig; not configuring zfcp

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer
2. Skip media check

Actual results:
Freezes after anaconda loads.

Expected results:
Successful install

Additional info:
I had problems with FC5 & the 2.6.17 kernel.  It never loaded for me (had to
stick with the 2.6.16 kernels).  I have a feeling it might have something to do
with my promise sata controller.

Attached is a dmidecode ran from my FC5 instance.

Btw, a work around is to boot with 'nodmraid'.

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer

Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.

Thanks for using Fedora!
