Description markm 2008-04-01 10:45:10 UTC
Description of problem:

my computer has 4GB memory, when I install fedora, at the end of the
installation it says that no kernel was found. but actually everything is in
place except the grub.conf file is missing. 

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

Fedora 8 installer

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a laptop with 4GB ram
2. Install Fedora 8
3. Restart
Actual results:

Anaconda installs proper PAE kernel, but at the end of the installation process,
when grub is being configured, it claims no kernel was installed. Users cannot
start their machines, as grub is not configured.

Expected results:

PAE kernel should be recognized and configured properly

Additional info:

I am trying to set grub.conf manually, but it still does not work :(

I have tried installation with 2GB only and it works flawlessly.
