Description Chris Ricker 2003-01-06 02:59:30 UTC
I'm doing an NFS install of rawhide under hercules. I'm doing a text-based
install with all defaults. The install hangs at ghostscript (and it hangs the
host fairly hard -- the hercules hosted session still responds to pings, but
does not respond to telnet / ssh

Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2003-01-06 03:00:37 UTC
sorry, clicked submit too soon

The package at which it hangs is ghostscript-fonts, not ghostscript

Comment 2 Michael Lee Yohe 2003-01-06 17:00:24 UTC
If you switch to the stderr virtual terminal (CTRL+ALT+F5, I think) when
installing does an error message appear when the NFS install hangs?

Comment 3 Chris Ricker 2003-01-06 17:04:09 UTC
In my case, the problem is during an install on an s/390 emulator. The install
is run over telnet / ssh -- there's no such thing as a VC

that said, there are debug.log / anaconda-something.log which are sorta the
same, but the session is too hung to access them at that point

Comment 4 Karsten Hopp 2003-01-06 22:43:47 UTC
when did you download the files ? I've fixed a bug in the comps file 
around 12/23/2002

Did you do a complete installation or which package selection did you use ?

Comment 5 Chris Ricker 2003-01-06 23:07:20 UTC
I downloaded rawhide last friday (20030103). I did the default ("Desktop
Workstation" is I think what its called), and didn't customize at all
