Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491524
After installation of Fedora 11 Alpha from DVD ISO image (i386), the system hangs during boot
Last modified: 2009-04-24 14:18:04 EDT
Description of problem:
After installation, the system boots, the incremental bars in the bottom of the screen become fully white and then it stops. At this stage the login screens are not available (not even in text mode).
From the Rescue CD, dmesg seems ok (but I am no expert...). It ends saying:
Adding 1572856k swap on /dev/vg_...
The file /var/log/messages is empty
Previously the system had a problem (cf. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=491512) solved by changing grub.conf so that instead of:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=UUID=...
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1
Could it be related to this?
I also changed /etc/fstab so that instead of:
UUID=... /boot ext3 ....
It know says
/dev/sda1 /boot ext3 ....
But the problem persists.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 alpha
Every time the system boots
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system
During boot after the bottom bars become white, the system stops
The system is running inside VirtualBox xVM Sun v. 2.1.4
Fedora 8 and Fedora 10 both run without problems inside VirtualBox
Fedora 11 alpha Live CD runs ok inside the same virtual machine
The alpha was quite a long time ago and almost all of the storage code has changed since then. Could you please try again when the beta live cd is released and let us know if you are still seeing this problem? Thanks.
The beta solved the problem.
Great, thanks for confirming.
