Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-07-17 18:56:01 UTC
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2001-07-19 21:23:43 UTC
Can you try again with beta2?

Comment 3 Bryan Leopard 2001-07-19 21:55:17 UTC
Re-tested with Beta-2. System does not boot after installation. Sytem stops 
after displaying LI. Selected GRUB as boot loader during installation.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-07-20 00:49:41 UTC
Does installing lilo work (to narrow down if this is a grub-specific bug). 
Also, if you could boot into rescue mode and attach the /boot/grub/grub.conf and
/etc/lilo.conf generated, that would be really helpful.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2001-07-27 20:17:41 UTC
Should be fixed in beta3

Comment 6 Bryan Leopard 2001-07-30 19:11:56 UTC
System is coming up fine when LILO is selected as boot loader.  Anaconda 
crashes at the end of the installation when GRUB is selected as boot loader. 

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2001-07-30 21:41:34 UTC
By crash, does it give a traceback?  Just sit there and hang?  Sig11?

Comment 8 Bryan Leopard 2001-08-01 20:35:49 UTC
This is fixed in Beta 3
