I installed 1.1.5 from updates-testing and tried again.

Previously, anaconda stopped and asked which disk to upgrade on after
the boot. It doesn't do that anymore, so it was too late to stop the
upgrade process. I have not had a chance to test the end result.

The hang was still there. After preupgrade did its job and rebooted, I
got the black screen with the blinking cursor in the upper left hand
corner as before. This time I got to time it, and after exactly 20
minutes it started X and did the upgrade.

Are there any log files or commands that would be interesting in order
to determine where the problem is?
