Description of problem:
The install seems to work until post starts and then hangs, I do keys Ctrl-Alt-F4 and see the following
<6>attempt to access beyond end of device
<6>01:01: rw=0, want=4846 limit=4608
<4>Error -3 while decompressing!
Workaround that RH Support gave me. Add to my kickstart disk syslinux.cfg the following to my existing 'append' line:
This means my kickstart ftp install needs a bigger ramdisk then the normal defualt size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.My ks.cfg and syslinux.cfg will be attached
Actual Results: Post Install hangs with decompressing error due to ramdisk being too small.
Expected Results: ramdisk size be big enough for decompressing during kickstart ftp install post section
Created attachment 61688 [details]
ks.cfg file from my kickstart ftp install disk when problem occurs
In current releases, you *must* have the ramdisk_size for things to work. We've
changed the default ramdisk size in the BOOT kernel for future releases.
