Comment 1 Fabian Deutsch 2009-02-09 12:10:59 EST
No change when using without smp and/or with an raw-image.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2009-02-20 13:47:56 EST
What stage of anaconda are you seeing this hang?  Also, are you able to reproduce this with rawhide?
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2009-02-20 13:48:41 EST
Well, I guess we don't make live CD images for rawhide, so that's not a very useful question to ask.  Still, can you reproduce it outside of the live CD case?  When F11 beta is released, can you try that as well?
Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2009-02-23 03:15:43 EST
Fabian, at what stage does anaconda hang? Can you get an strace of anaconda?

There you go.
It appears right from the start.

I didn't capture it right now, but there are some kmod errors when starting liveinst from a terminal (easy to reproduce).
