Does the install still hang if you use text mode?
How big are you trying to make your / partition?
the installer does not chrash if i use "text" to install, nor if I don't select
The / partition is 450 MB
How ever it is not due to lack of space, if i select the same packages in txt
mode the installaton goes along smoothly
On my machine anaconda crashes each time, even in text mode.
My hardware is:
AMD K-5 PR@100 MHz
16 MB RAM
3.2 GB & 8.4 GB Hard-drives
*** Bug 36629 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I have PII450, 64MB Ram No SCSI. Instllation crashed 99% of time in GUI. I got
only one install in around 20 tries and that was partitionless, so useless.
All the failures were while tranferring image to disk. Once I got a
partitionless install but postinstall script hung. After
reading this report, I tried GUI without individual pacckage selection, install
crashed at the same place it used to: while transferring install image to the
disk. The I tried text mode without individual pacckage selection. It worked.
I don't really know what is causing this problem. Have you tried 7.1?
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have more information.
Unforyunatelly, the same bug occurs in Red Hat 7.1.
