Description Theodor 2008-02-02 19:46:57 EST
Hi, I have a problem with fedora core 5 on ppc.
Every time i try to install it in my IBM Enterprise server Model B50 RS/6000 the
fedora installation hangs after booting.
After I type at the boot screen linux32 the install hangs at a screen where it
says loading sym53c8xx driver.
Does someone has a solution for this bug?

Thank you.

Changing component to 'kernel' as this is clearly not anything to do with

Also, fedora core 5 is... ancient.
Comment 3 Theodor 2008-02-02 20:17:50 EST
It may be ancient but ifr i try to install fedora core 7 it might fix the problem?
I need to install this server for cpanel.

Thank you for the bug report. However, Fedora Project no longer maintains this
 version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug
 if the problem persists.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to close this CANTFIX.
