Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 32259
6.x installers bypass package selection and hardware config
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:42:28 EDT
I am trying to install Red Hat Linux 6.2 from CD on a PC with the
Intel D850 ATX Mainboard
Intel P4 1.5 GHZ Processor
256 MB RAM
45 GB 7200 RPM Hard Disk Drive
3COM 10/100 PCI Network Adapter
Video card is unknown -- had to replace ATI RAGE MAXX 64MB AGP with an
older card to make graphic install work.
I have tried Custom and GNOME installations. In both cases, installation
goes awry just before Package Group Selection. Clicking "Next" at the
point where package selection should begin does nothing. Clicking "Next"
twice more takes me directly to About To Install screen. The screen after
that attempts to install 0 packages, and the installation hangs.
I thought I might have a corrupted installation CD, so I tried using a 6.1
CD instead and got the same results.
Also, text install crashes at same point with anaconda errors. I have no
way of copying these down other than to type them manually, which I am
reluctant to do if I can help it. Please advise.
Please try the text mode install instead.
The error message is extremely helpful, so if you can type it in, it would make
it much easier for us to tell what went wrong.
I believe it may have just been that the installation CDs were scratched beyond
reading. I acquired a version 7.0 CD and installed with no problems.
Ok. Looks like it was bad cd. Resolving as not a bug.
