Description Russell Doty 2009-04-25 12:19:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Can't install F10 guest on F11. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F11 Rawhide

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start virt manager
2. Select create new machine
3. Select Linux and Fedora 10, 1 vcpu, 1024 MB memory, install from CD
Actual results:
Installer gets to the point of "loading vmlinuz" with four dots then does not proceed any further. System is at 100% utilization on the core that the guest is running on. It stayed at this point with 100% cpu utilization for over 2 hours before being killed.

Expected results:
Successful installation of F10 guest.

Additional info:
Windows and F11 guests install and run fine.

I can't reproduce on a fully updated rawhide. I tried the above config using a boot iso, dvd iso, and physical install dvd: all booted to the anaconda text mode no problem.

Can you post ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log? Though unlikely, can you verify there isn't an issue with your media?

Attempted to install F9. 

Got to Installation Method. Selected Local CD/DVD

Received message "The Fedora disk was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the Fedora disc and press OK to retry."

Tried installing F10. Performed a media verification, which was successful.

Continued installation, received "Fedora disc not found in any drives" message.
Comment 5 Russell Doty 2009-04-28 22:12:21 EDT
User error...

Discovered that the window is smaller than the installer window, and the "next" button in the lower right corner was being obscured. Resized the window so that I would see the entire installer screen. Was able to successfully install F10.
