Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447183
install ain't 'appenin'
Last modified: 2008-06-08 11:11:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda not running from iso on hard drive or from DVD that's been sha1 checked
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start installer from DVD and choose install in graphic or text
2.from rescue disk and choose from downloaded iso on hd
3.if theres another way (I ain't found it)
The hard drive error is just a fail and it prints reboot now or something (forgot)
The DVD error is as follows:-
Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok
Decompressing Linux... Done.
Booting the kernel.
Panic: early exeption 0e rip 10:ffffffff8101baf0 error 0 cr2 ffffffff5fb030
run anaconda run
The check for APIC already mapped was added recently but the early assignment to
maxlvt was not removed. This error is masking the real reason that the kernel is
failing to boot...
====> int maxlvt = lapic_get_maxlvt();
/* APIC hasn't been mapped yet */
maxlvt = lapic_get_maxlvt();

Thanks. Works great...referring the above issue..
This has been closed I see but it don't help with installing from the DVD or am
I missing something between my ears?
My mistake. I was talking about the yum update and put it on the wrong bug . Either way the update
works. The DVD install on my part only got fixed when I took the USB drive offline.
