Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497351
anaconda does not start without nohpet

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to start an i586 install with boot.iso from a recent rawhide
(has been hapening since atleast 220.127.116.11-100)
2. It then hangs after printing the following messages:
hpet0: at MMIO 0xfed00000, IRQs 2, 8, 24, 25, 26, 27, 0, 0
hpet0: 8 comparators, 64-bit 14.318180 MHz counter
3. Starting the install with nohpet on the syslinux cmdline fixes this.
This is a system with a Fujitsu D2831 motherboard (q45 chipset), with
an intel quadcore q8200 processor, 2 gig ram using the integrated intel graphics.
I've tried with the scratch build:
kylem did for me and I can confirm that that fixes this.
This is fixed in CVS now and a fixes build is on its way to rawhide, closing.
