Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 860533
live installs over existing installation stalling at "Writing network configuration"
Last modified: 2012-10-16 07:30:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Live installs of F18 Alpha and later nightlies seem to stall for me
consistently at "Writing network configuration" when installing
over an existing Fedora installation. Installing to a fresh disk
seems ok. Rebooting into the unfinished install works!
(after waiting for anaconda disk activity to cease)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F18 Live over an existing Fedora install
Installer get stuck near end on progress screen showing
"Writing network configuration".
Install to finish normally.
Also happens with anaconda-18.9.
But does not happen for net install.
What steps did you take that resulted in "installing over an existing Fedora installation"?
I just mean as in doing an install rather than an upgrade say.
Currently it would be an old F18 install for me.
I can also test over an old F17 install if it helps.
Please attach the logs from /tmp/*log during the install to this bug as individual text/plain attachments.

P.S. there really needs to be a way to upload multiple files at once :/
This is might have been a duplicate or similar to bug 860791.
I believe I see the same problem when trying to install Fedora-18-Beta-TC3-x86_64-netinst.iso into qemu.
The logs seem to be the same as those attached by Eric above.
I think this could be a duplicate of bug 862801. Please retest with F18 Beta TC4, thanks.
Works for me with F18 Beta TC4. Thank you!
Then I believe it really is a duplicate.
