I expect this is a known problem we had found too. The fix was complicated, so
it won't make snapshot 1 but is planned for snapshot 2.
Comment 2 Jane Lv 2008-06-20 03:28:43 EDT
This bug still exists in snapshot2.  
Comment 3 Denise Dumas 2008-06-20 12:28:55 EDT
This BZ has no flags set and no acks at all. Code freeze for the final build of
4.7 is in 3 days. So it is not going to make 4.7, and we'll have to add a releae

Geoff, did you believe this to be a duplicate of another BZ, and if so, which one? 
Comment 7 Jane Lv 2008-06-24 04:54:00 EDT
Geoff is back to Intel.  John is his replacement. :)

This bug is a duplicate of bug 449356.

We reproduced this issue on Tylersburg-HEDT platform.  GUI installation on
Tylersburg-HEDT works on RHEL4.6 and RHEL5.2.
