Description Need Real Name 2008-05-03 22:54:49 EDT
Description of problem:
DVD installation fails on my brand new thinkpad.  It hangs or in one case gave a
register spew on the screen.  Media check passed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC8 DVD ISO, x86-64.

How reproducible:
Attempt to 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Ubuntu Hardy Heron on machine which works fine, but then you're
running Ubuntu.
2. Get tired of having to apt-get so many add-on packages and attempt to install
Fedora 8 instead.
Actual results:
Installation fails.  Media consistency check works.  Ubuntu works and shows no
obvious problem with the hardware.  Machine is a brand new T61 with Intel
graphics (the factory config that comes with Suse Enterprise Desktop).  I
attempted about 3 times.  The first time I got a register dump on the screen
that I photographed with a digicam and can upload later if anyone wants to see
it.  After that, it just hangs.

Expected results:
Normal installation.

Additional info: 
I am in the process of downloading the Fedora 9 preview and will see if that
works any better.

Somehow my added comment didn't go through.  Basically I reproduced the crash (I
forgot to say, it happens right after the media check) and got a second register
dump.  Both screen photos are attached.  Also, I tried the F9 preview DVD. 
Instead of hanging or dumping registers, it went to a dialog that just said "error".

Another attempt to install F9 Preview got somewhat further, but hung while
trying to mount the existing file system from my Ubuntu install.  This is pretty
seriously broken.  I upgraded severity to "urgent" based on the description in
the doc file since this is a total showstopper for this machine.  Has anyone
successfully installed F8 or F9 Preview on a T61 from DVD?
