Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6708
Installer does to complete when using new anaconda boot disk
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:39:30 EST
I just got RH 6,1 and also saw the Errata regarding issues
with installed if there is an NTFS partition present. Since
I have that, I got the following two .img files:
I proceeded to boot from the floppy created by the
boot-RHEA-1999:044.img file, and I used the "linux updates"
command at the boot prompt. vmlinuz started loading, it
completed and then it got to the section where it would say:
The CD would get accessed, but it just stays here and does
NOT go any further and NEVER get asked to insert the updates
floppy. If I do the same WITHOUT using "linux updates" at
the boot prompt, it boots file and the installed (X version)
comes up and works w/o problems, except that it has an error
when doing an Upgrade because of the NTFS partition. So I
am in a nbbind since the fix seems broken.
I have the same kind of problem. The installation hangs after that "Running
/sbin/loader" line. But if I try without the "linux updates" command (like with
"text"), the installation starts well until the anaconda/python error that has
already been reported dozens of times. And I have no NTFS partitions. Is there
anything to fix this?
