Description Martin Gregorie 2007-01-22 21:02:03 EST
Description of problem: While upgrading FC5 to FC6 the upgrade hung while 
working in innd. No errors were reported. Had to reboot to escape from it


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


How reproducible: hard to tell - I don't know it its specific to my 
installation.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start from a fully updated FC5 system with innd installed but not configured 
or used.
2. Upgrade to FC6 with veridied CDs.
3.
  
Actual results: Installer hangs on disk 3 of 5


Expected results: Ditto

NOTE: The "Version" and "Component" boxes are garbage becaiuse they don't work
with Opera 9.10: 

"Version" is apparently a text entry box containing "unspecified" and can't be
changed. "Component" is the same, but its two lines can be selected individually
but not changed. I was surprised the bug report was accepted because the next
page said to go back and supply a component name.

This is being input via Mozilla, which shows them as drop-down lists, but they
are still not alterable to anything sensible.

Can you switch ttys when this occurs?

No

There's not really anything we can do here.  Even if we identified a kernel
problem, there's no way to get an updated kernel onto the install media.

The only thing I can suggest is to upgrade to a newer release.
