Description of problem:
Trying to install on a Digital Multia the installer just stops right after
entering the root password.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.choose any class of install, normally custom
3.partition hard drive
4.enter root password
Actual Results: after entering the root password twice and pressing enter
the console installer clears the center box where the passwords were
entered but does not advance to the next screen.
Expected Results: I believe the installer should take me to a screen where
I can add additional users.
Is this in text mode or GUI mode?
GUI mode fails on my system because I only have 32MB of RAM, so it is the text
install that freezes or stops right after the root password information is entered.
Is your root password at least 6 characters long?
the password I entered uses seven alphanumeic characters
I just did an install on one of our Alphas here and I can't reproduce the problem.
