Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 865437
Anaconda hangs (consumes 100% cpu without any progress) after preparing to install
Last modified: 2014-11-03 09:35:14 EST
Description of problem:
I've created a Fedora spin using pungi. After working around a number of bugs (e.g. missing hostname requires in anaconda), I'm able to go through all installation screens. Anaconda starts the installation, the preparation progress bar is completed and in GUI it says that it is going to install base filesystem package (in console, the last log message is "preparing to install"). In this stage, no further progress is made, and anaconda is using 100% cpu (as reported by top).
I'm trying to install in KVM, but not sure if it has any relation with this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest packages from fedora/updates repo
Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log, /tmp/syslog, and /tmp/progam.log to this bug report as individual, uncompressed attachments.

OK, I lost my interest in this bug and decided to not build a spin from Fedora 17.
Also, I don't think that anybody would investigate it any further.
