Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6765
Install fails in IBM Netfinity 4000 R

The default 6.1 graphical install hangs the computer when it
tries to start X. The text install hangs the computer after
These are the very thin, flat rack-mount servers. The model
we are trying to install onto has dual 500MHz Pentium III
procesors, CT 69000 graphics, two Intel EtherExpress 100B
ethernet interfaces, an Adaptec 29xx SCSI adapter and two
9GB SCSI drives. It has no floppy drive and must boot off of
either the network or CDRM for installs.
Are we talking hard freezes here, or just the installer stops doing
anything, but you can still move the mouse around and the such?
We have one of these machines here in the lab, and although there are
some Xconfiguration problems during the install, I have never seen it
hang the machine.
