FC6: Installer hangs at installing "glibc-common"


Hello,

I have a problem with installing FC6 on an old computer (128MB RAM, 500MHz Intel P3)
The upper (package) progress bar goes until 100%, but then the installer doesnt continue with the next package.

switching to other consoles works, after more than 30 minutes the cpu is still 99,4% used by anaconda.


The last info log message is "switching to cd 1 [...] for package epiphany"

The last kernel log messages are three times
"Intel machine check architecture supported.
Intel machine check reporting enabled on CPU#0."

I tried it with boot params "linux noprobe text acpi=off noapic", but the same error occured.

The media check says that the disk passed the check, it is OK.

Thanks for help in advance

Max

Try adding the switches 'ide=nodma noht' minus the single quotemarks to the boot mixture, it will be a lot slower to install FC6 but should work.

Because it still didn't work, I installed debian.
I can't understand how it can be impossible a debian user with 1,5 years of experience as I am to install a distribution which is ment to be userfriendly (as opposite to debian)

I liked redhat earlier, but I definitely don't understand what's going on with fedora here.

ditto - same problem.

the specs on the failed machine are:

Celery 300
192mb RAM

thanks for posting the bug initially mgmax, I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. guess the install is fux0red.

Hello Debian...
