Fedora installer hangs on first step
Last modified: 2008-06-09 20:31:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Can't install using the Live CD, after starting the installer, by selecting a
keyboard layout (Portuguese in my case but English also crashes) and clicking
next the installer hangs with an "Exception Occurred" error.
I also can-t add new keyboard layout to the default english, nothing appears in
the pull down menu within the graphical utility to manage keyboard preferences.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Running Fedora 8 test3 (7.92) Live CD
See description. I'm using an AMD Athlon 3800, Asus M2N, 1 GB DDR2-800, in case
it matters. Id be glad to provide more information if required.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'Install to hard drive' from the desktop
2. click 'next'
2. click 'install anyway' on warning
3. click 'next'
Error opening /dev/mapper
nvidia_iehdicdg: no such device or address
Proceeding with installation...

'Exception Occurred' error log
I have the same (or very similar) problem with the Fedora 7 Live CD.
Have you encountered this problem with Fedora 9?
This is solved in Fedora 9.
