I'm installing FC4t3 x86_64 on a Dell Precision 370 with no other OSes. My
install source is an NFS-exported loopback-mounted DVD image downloaded with
http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/FC4-test3-DVD-x86_64.torrent; the SHA1SUM
checked out. I made two installation attempts; I observed the second one
more carefully than the first one.
On both attempts, the installation almost completed but left the system
unbootable. The first time, as I recall the reboot gave "OS not found" or
similar. The second time, the installation exited with "install exited
abnormally", and upon reboot, grub threw error 15, at the point of loading
Both installation attempts installed all, or almost all, of the packages I
requested before exiting abnormally. On the second attempt, the "install
exited abnormally" was printed on VT1 quickly after a package (the last
package?) was installed in the X session on VT7.
I've asked for an "Everything" install. Besides that, I don't believe I
changed any of the installer defaults.
Has anyone else seen this, or can you offer a suggestion?
