Fedora 12 Install Crashes -- help?


I have a Fedora 12 Linux Installable LiveCD that I downloaded last week.

When I attempt to install the OS on my PC, the install software crashes immediately after I select US-English on the first screen. I'm copying the entire error report below. Any help in understanding how to make this work would be greatly appreciated.

My system is configured as follows:

Gigabyte P35-DS3R motherboard with 4G RAM. (FYI, I'm using the 32-bit LiveCD just because I may need a 32-bit OS for some purposes. I know this means I may not be able to use all of my RAM.)

There are 3 500G hard drives connected to the computer. /dev/sda and /dev/sdb are RAID-1 mirrors via the on-motherboard ICH9R RAID chip. The logical partitions show up as /dev/dm-1, /dev/dm-2, /dev/dm-3, /dev/dm-4, and /dev/dm-5. When I type `fdisk -l`, I can see sda, sdb, and dm-* all separately. (I can provide the full output of `fdisk` if anybody wants to see it.)

/dev/sdc is a standalone drive without RAID.

I want to install Fedora on /dev/dm-2 with swap on /dev/dm-5.

Currently, /dev/dm-1 and /dev/sdc2 each contain a separate installation of WinXP.

If anybody can explain why the install crashes, I would really appreciate the help. Here's the part of the error log of what happens when I try to click past the first install screen (the entire error log was too big to paste, so I cut out parts that I suspected had nothing to do with the error and replaced them with "[DELETED]"):

The above link is from the FedoraProject wiki under Common F12 bugs. I don't know if it pertains to your problem or not, I don't use raid.

I also don't think the live CD is equipped for installs using raid. Your best bet would be to try and download the DVD, as it has more options for complicated installs.

GoinEasy9: Thanks, but that link doesn't resolve the issue. The installer from the LiveCD crashes immediately after the first screen. Thus, I don't get close to discovering whether the installation is bootable or not.

Well, maybe someone will have an answer in the fedoraforums, I saw you posted there too. I still believe that the DVD install will work much better than LiveCD, the LiveCD is very restrictive.

Agree with GoingEasy9....try the full DVD install as this would show a bit more detail I would think than the Live DVD.
