Description of problem:
Installing on a Compaq Deskproen. The machine has three SCSI 8 gig hdd. /dev/sda has NT, /dev/sdb is for Linux and /dev/sdc is for OS/2. The install appears to work well until the partitioning (I chose Disk Druid). At that time the installation program hung. I restarted X server (ctl + alt + delete) and there were many gnome errors reported. A power-off was required to restart the machine.
On the second try the partitioner allowed me to delete the partitions on /dev/sdb and then hung the machine again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the installation
2.Try to use Disk Druid
Actual Results: System hang
Expected Results: Linux installation
If you switch to tty4 when it hangs, are there any error messages from the
Please advise how to switch to tty4. The machine locks up tight. Would
attempting ctl+alt+F5 get me to tty4? Will be glad to retry install if you'll
be kind enough to enlighten me how to switch to tty4. Thanks.
I got a similiar error when leaving disk druid, the machine locked up solid,
the odd thing is that the caps lock and scroll lock lights were blinking
together. I couldn't effect any of the keyboard lights by pressing their keys.
I had 2 ide drives, hda and hdb.
Sorry - cntl-alt-f4 for VC4.
