Description of problem:
 The install runs correctly installs the boot loader and runs the post-install scripts (we remove all of ours from the kickstart file, so there are none). The screen then goes blank and nothing happens. There is still a graphic mouse, but know mouse or keyboard action will cause it to reboot. If we telnet to the server we are in anaconda. If we power cycle the server it will boot RHEL6.0. We tried doing this using the "text" kernel parameter which tells it not to use the UI. Again this runs to completion, but then it print a line at the bottom that says "Enter Control C or Cntl-Alt-Delete to reboot the system. We have never seen this before. Using the "nomodeset" option did not help

Can you also attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/program.log?  Thanks.

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2010-05-11 20:59:50 UTC
Sorry, I see them in the sosreport.  Attaching for future convenience.  They don't look helpful though.

Comment 8 Brian Lane 2010-05-17 16:58:55 UTC
Could you attach the other /tmp/*log files? This sounds like there is an error right at the end of the install (hence the ctrl-c prompt).

Does tty5 show anything unusual when it is done? Or is there any information right above the Ctrl-C prompt?

You might also try not passing nokill to it.

Comment 9 Brian Lane 2010-05-20 01:13:56 UTC
This is due to passing nokill on the kernel command line.
