Description andrew.cowan 2002-04-19 04:11:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
During a clean-install of 7.2, I select "create bootdisk". No errors are 
displayed, but when I try to use the boot floppy, it cannot find my USB mouse, 
and then I get a blue screen and the option to remove the configuration etc. I 
choose "do nothing" and the boot completes, but I only get the character 
interface, and cannot login. All my accounts return "System error", then back 
to the login prompt. The only way to close the system is with CTRL+ALT+DEL.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from floppy or custom kernel
2. If I build a custom kernel the same thing happens when I try to boot it.
3.
	

Actual Results:  Error message "/proc/bus/usb" does not exist during boot then 
blue-screen as before.

Expected Results:  System boots normally

Additional info:

make install seems to assume using lilo as a boot manager. I am using Grub, 
and have written the boot sector to my root partition. This is a dual-boot 
machine with Windows-XP.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
