Complete hang of anaconda executing scripts from bash rpm
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:44 EDT
Description of Problem:
GUI install on (null)
Selected UK kb, en_GB system locale, workstation and then tweaked a few
Left it to perform install. Returned to find it apparently stuck on
bash, two minutes into an alleged 16-minute install (yeah, I know not
to believe those in first few packages).
Flipped to F2. free, df fine. ps had a shell script running as
"sh var/tmp/rpm-something.number 1" This script was the one to put
/etc/shells there. There is a loop in it. Killed this PID (ran out
of ideas!), watched ps again. Again it got stuck running another bash rpm
post-install script, this time one with no loops in it. Killed this PID,
watched it again. Again stuck on a script running ld-config.
Could not think of anything left to do and needed the CD for another
box. Anaconda didn't crash so no stack trace. Just hit control-alt-delete.
This box is an AMD K6. Suggestion made that it may have installed
"the wrong libraries" -- Alan has gone to try on another K6 to find out.
