Did you verify your media?  When it hangs, can you switch ttys?

Comment 2 Nigel Horne 2007-06-27 19:17:56 UTC
Yes and no in that order.

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 and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.


Comment 4 Christopher Brown 2008-01-09 13:44:00 UTC
Given this is an issue with the Fedora 7 installer and there has been no update
on this bug for three months, I am closing WONTFIX. You may wish to test with a
fedora unity re-spin:


which resolves a number of installer bugs. Thank you for taking the time to file
the initial bug.
