I am currently trying to install Fedora Core 2 on a shuttle Zen ST62k
I have successfullly installed fedora core 2 on various other models of
but am having some troubles with this one.
I am also having trouble finding out exactly what is going wrong with
It seems to get as far as installing the software and then either ends
with "Installation aborted abnormally"
or sometimes it has a kernel crash.
The last messages I see on the ALT-F3 screen are:
Trying to mount hda1 on /
isys.py mount()going to mount /tmp/hda1 on /mnt/sysimage.
no pcic controller detect
needed e2fsprogs for /
needed e2fsprogs for /boot
moving (1) to step install packages
setting file_context_path to nil
Sorry this is my transcription on a piece of paper so I didn't write
down all the messages.
Is there anythig wrong in the above messages?
I can see the access light flashing on the HDD so I know it is copying
software to the HDD.
It then fails with the installation aborted abnormally message or
which doesn't leave me alot to go on.
Sometimes, it does kernel crash - is there anyway I can actually read
this message of captur it?
It scroll off the screeen so fast.
The specs for the SHuttle zen are below. It seems to detect all the
hardware just fine when booting off the fedora CD's
Is there any other info I can grab to help debug this problem?
