Comment 8 Robert M Williams 2007-03-26 14:35:26 EDT
tried build 20070325 (kernel 2.6.20-1.3017) and now the problem occurs before
sata_sil loads
it now begins with /sbin/loader notification
as before constant mouse or keyboard events allow the system to proceed
Comment 9 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-26 14:48:51 EDT
Sorry, I thought this was an FC6 bug.
Comment 10 Robert M Williams 2007-03-26 15:09:27 EDT
plugged in an external usb mouse and install proceeds with fewer movements required.
however after the hard disk formats and 'transfering install image' is displayed
the screen goes white and system hard locks.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
