F8test 1 HDD format doesn't complete
Last modified: 2008-08-06 16:20:49 EDT
Description of problem:
when trying to install formatting of SATA RAID volume either fails altogether,
or hangs at %99 (and cycles DVD drive until powered off)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installer, select SATA RAID volume MD0, use default layout, install
either hangs at 99% format, or errors out
format complete, move on to install
F7 won't even get this far, so this is "progress"
SATA RAID was RAID1 using Intel 82801 RAID controller
Processor is a P4 with HT turned on
gui install error message:
an error occurred while trying to format volgroup00/logvol00. the problem is
serious and install can not continue.
press enter exit installer
Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog to this error report? You can
grab these by switching over to tty2 when the error dialog appears and copying
them off the machine.
