Fedora installation problem
12/02/2018 9:30
I recently attempted to reinstall fedora core 1 from scratch on a AMD800mhz/128 ram IDE (no raid) test server. Fedora was already installed butit had been a while since I did a *inx install so I wanted to test a installprior to doing one on site. I popped the disk in and removed/formattedpartitions and proceeded to install. Each time after about 20min theinstall kicks out with a install exited abnormally. I have let installcheck the cd OK, replaced the cd drive, tried text and graphical, changedoptions up/down, removed all internal cards with exception of the nic/video3com905tx/tnt2. Reburned another disk all to no available.

Anywho, Is there a way to get debug info during a install so I can find outwhat's happening? Thanks

That is press ctrl+alt+f2 (and the other function keys,diffrent consoles have diffrent info it seems) __Nils Olav SelÄsdalSystem Engineerw w w . u t e l s y s t e m s . c o m

I will try (2) swappingcables/drives later today however the drive in it is less than 3 months oldand was functioning fine. As far as heating I doubt that as well. Due tothis being a home based test PC its one of those pretty cases which has afan in the back, fan in the front, clear see-through side panel with glowingfan inside it. Even the case is less than 3 months old.

It seems as though it fails about the same time each install however when itfails it kicks you out of the graphical interface so you cant see what itwas running prior to going down.

My money would be on either #s 1, 2, or 5.

This, to me, definitely sounds like a hardware issue rather than a CD/ISOissue. Windows on the same machine is more tolerant of hardware errorsduring an install (case in point, I have two pieces of RAM with over 9000errors each on them, they still install Win 95, 98, 2000, and XP fine butgive a ton of errors after install and corrupt files). They will not evenbegin an install of any Linux distro. Cliff
