Description Rob Strong 2007-05-08 20:44:27 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda installer fails

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC6 test 4(6.93)

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go through installer via PXE
2. Create partion layout
3. Select Packages
Actual results:
I attempted to send the output over the network to another pc but that crashed
to.  Nice thought though!  It crashes with an LVM error.  Looks like it's trying
to initialize the LVM with 'vgchange' before it gets to creating the
partitioning scheme.  I tried doing this both ways, with and without LVM
partitions and got the same error.  This happens after the dependency check and
once you click <next>.  The 32bit install goes nowhere fast.  I'll submit
another ticket.

Expected results:
Installer should of zipped right through and created partions and installed packages

Additional info:
I have a Dell Optiplex 320
80 GB Seagate SATA drive (surpised that it even detected it unlike fc6)
512 MB memory

WOW... after all that figuring I complete the install and it wont boot the
kernel.  Grub halts when attempting to load the kernel image!!!  This is horrible!

Can you attach the tracbeack you received?  Otherwise, it's very difficult to
figure out what went wrong.
