Description Patrick Mowry 2007-10-06 17:46:23 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to install 8-test3 on a Latitude D810 with an existing FC7 install,
the installer stops responding during the text portion of the install after
running /sbin/loader.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 7.92 boot.iso

How reproducible:

Always, when choosing either the default or text install option

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
I can hit Ctrl+AltFx and swith screens, and hit the enter key and see the text
on the screen move up, but the install boes not continue even if I walk away for
a few minutes.  There is no floppy drive in the notebook.  I have booted from
the CD/DVD drive in the drive bay.
Last line on F1: screen is running /sbin/loader
on F3 screen: INFO      : inserted /tmp/loop.ko
on F4 screen: <6>Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M

Expected results:

Additional info:

I was attempting to do a network install.  I am downloading the full DVD now to
try a local install instead to compare.  Fedora 7 was originally installed on
this notebook from a DVD.

Apparently my patience was not long enough.  I ran the install again using both
the DVD and boot.iso.  It pauses at /sbin/loader for 10 minutes and then
continues with each one of them.  I did not have this pause with the Fedora 7

Does it print something about the clocksource being unstable? (on console #4)
See bug 319441...
Comment 3 Patrick Mowry 2007-10-11 21:56:26 EDT
That's it.
  I do not see how to mark this report as a duplicate.  But feel free to contact
me if you need another test point.
