Comment 2 Abdel Sadek 2012-05-10 11:38:13 EDT
The issue was encountered while trying to install Fedora 17 Beta on an IBM 3650 M3 server.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2012-05-14 10:30:39 EDT
That's a pretty strange error.  If you can reproduce it, can you switch to tty2 and see how much memory is free when the error occurs?
Comment 5 Abdel Sadek 2012-06-12 09:15:23 EDT
The issue was initially encountered using Fedora 17 Beta. After using Fedora 17 GA version, I was not able to reproduce it.
