Description Aron Griffis 2009-05-07 23:01:48 EDT
Description of problem:
rawhide (post-f11preview) on HP ProLiant DL385.  Attempt to install f10 guest

virt-install --name=f10-vm1 --ram=256 --hvm --accelerate \
  --location=http://md2020.nashua/install/x86_64/fedora10/ \
  --file=/dev/VolGroup00/f10-vm1 --nographics \

It always hangs here:

I've tried text install (--nographics as above) and vnc console, doesn't make
a difference, always hangs in the same spot.  I've also tried with and without
proxy settings, same thing.  I am able to wget install.img to the host so it
doesn't seem to be a problem with the server.

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

How reproducible:
three times in a row

Okay, figured out that it's running out of memory.  Increasing to --ram=512 allows the transfer to complete and the installation to continue
