Description Chris Ricker 2001-07-24 17:32:46 UTC
GUI install, 07192001 updates

Custom package group selected -- X, KDE, various daemons, gcc and friends,
various utils

All packages installed, and then no further messages appear on screen. 
Screen is frozen at the end of the zsh install showing 0 packages, 0:00:00
time remaining.  Text consoles indicate that grub was installed.  X
configuration was not done, and neither was creation of a boot floppy,
creation of /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, etc.

all processes are sleeping in ps -ef output

How reproducible is this?  If you can get a specific package set (and specific
hardware, order of screens, etc.) it would be very helpful.

Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2001-07-24 20:56:58 UTC
All graphical installs tried so far, no matter what package set chose, hang on 
that machine.  X configuration in text mode for that box is borked (Trident 
CyberBlade chipset) -- perhaps that's why the GUI post-install is hanging?

Comment 4 Chris Ricker 2001-07-25 05:38:34 UTC
I think it's actually a different bug -- if I'm reading the other bug report
right, he actually gets into postinstall, sees the postinstall progress meter,
etc.  I'm not seeing any of that.  I just hang at the last package install
screen before any postinstall screens show up.

This bug has many manifestations. We're looking into into.
