Comment 4 Tony Camuso 2010-07-28 13:32:41 UTC
I will try to reproduce with latest snapshot.

Comment 5 Tony Camuso 2010-07-30 12:57:28 UTC

Did you change SELinux policy?

Was the disk in the process of relabeling when the system appeared to hang?

Comment 6 Aristeu Rozanski 2010-07-30 14:56:37 UTC
no. it was during a kerneltier1, I had no direct access to the machine. and if
I recall correctly, it took so long that the external watchdog kicked in.

Comment 7 Tony Camuso 2010-07-30 15:35:59 UTC

I've got 32-bit RHEL6 snap-8 installing now on hp-bl495cg5-01.rhts.bos.redhat.com 

Making good progress, aobut halfway done right now. 

How far did you get in the install?

Comment 8 Aristeu Rozanski 2010-07-30 15:42:16 UTC
it installs and fails to boot into -37

Comment 9 Tony Camuso 2010-07-30 16:29:37 UTC
Successfully installed and rebooted 32-bit RHEL6 snap-8

I think we can close this bz

System is still live if you want to root around.

Please reopen if the system fails to boot any subsequent R6 kernel builds.
