Anaconda exits abnormally while installing rhel6-beta2
Last modified: 2010-07-12 09:32:48 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL6-beta2 -- RHEL6.0-20100701.3 install(as a kvm guest on F12), fails to install when I select Basic-Server(with gnome-desktop).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pick the iso from here(and verify sha256sum to ensure download complete) -- http://download.devel.redhat.com/rel-eng/RHEL6.0-20100701.3/6.0/Server/x86_64/iso/RHEL6.0-20100701.3-Server-x86_64-DVD1.iso
2. Proceed with it as a kvm guest.
3.Now at the anaconda install wizard, select 'Basic-Server'(or 'Desktop') and customize it by adding 'Gnome-Desktop' and a bunch of other softwares
4. Now, proceed with install
Anaconda exits abnormally.
'Anaconda died after receiving signal 6.
install exited abnormally [1/1]'
(See attached screenshot)
Install should go ahead smoothly.
Note: If I just select 'Basic-Server' _without_ any customizations and proceed, install completes successfully.

Not sure, what I'm missing. I tried multiple times to get the install going with 'Desktop' and other customizations but to no avail.
How much memory are you giving your guest, and does the install succeed if you bump the memory up by quite a bit?
1024MB RAM. I'm trying with 2048MB as we speak, will report back the result.
And, 2 vcpus (on a quad-code machine) .My host has 10G RAM, so plenty available.
Not much luck. I tried with both 2048MB and 3072 MB RAM and install still 'exits abnormally'
can you please attach output of:
from the host?
On the host:
root@~ $cat /sys/module/kvm_intel/parameters/ept
Marking this as a dup of a hidden bug. The good news is there appears to be an updated kernel package in the works to fix it.
