Could you look on VC3 and VC4 for any odd looking messages (hit cntl-alt-f3 and
cntl-alt-f4)?  This works fine for me.
Comment 2 Claudiu RAVEICA 2001-08-31 02:45:46 EDT
Installer 'hangs' does not mean that we can not look on VC3 or VC4 or kill the 
anaconda process on VC2. Doing this installer will continue, but it does not 
create the tasks selected.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-08-31 10:56:18 EDT
I am having trouble understanding the problem you are seeing. We have not
experienced hangs as you are describing.  Does the install suceed, with
occasional delays, or does the machine simple stop and require a reboot in the
middle of an install?
Comment 4 Claudiu RAVEICA 2001-08-31 11:11:25 EDT
Ok, I have dicovered the problem:

These stupid things appears because bash rpm from iso image was corrupted.

Replacing bash rpm with the other one , not from iso image made everything ok.
