Description Vincent 2007-11-28 14:26:28 UTC
Description of problem:
not able to compile modules for installed kernel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install script??

How reproducible:
every time same results - Very

Conclusion:
I think Anaconda is being tripped up by the AMD Athlon XP chip and the devel
package is not being installed. I did try installing the kernel-devel i686
package but it still didn't work.
I did try installing Fedora 7.91 and it worked properly on the AMD Athlon.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora 8 DVD on system with AMD Athlon XP CPU
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
devel files are not installed for kernel installed.

Expected results:
devel files are installed for kernel installed.

Additional info:
Systems used:

Desktop:
Asus A7V8X-X
AMD Athlon XP 1800+
512M RAM DDR1
NVidia MX 440 w/ AGP 8x 64M

Laptop:
Dell Inspiron 8600
Intel Pentium M 1.4 GHz
256M RAM DDR1
NVidia Go 5200 32M

After installing Fedora 8 on the desktop I noticed that when I went to install
the NVidia drivers it reported that the headers/devel package wasn't installed.
When I went to disable the firewall it reported that it wasn't able to uninstall
the module.
I next tried installing it on the laptop and did not get any error when
disabling the firewall, The NVidia driver installed with out any complaints, and
the source files where properly installed at /usr/src/kernels/2.6.23.1-42.fc8-i686

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2007-11-28 14:59:46 UTC
Which kernel packages do you have installed (rpm -qa kernel\*)?  Did you select
the development group to make sure that gcc was installed?  Can you attach
/var/log/anaconda.log and /root/install.log to this bug report?
