abadger1999> Anyone here successfully used the netinstall.iso for rc1 alpha? <abadger1999> In particular: http://serverbeach1.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/15-Alpha.RC1/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-15-Alpha-i386-netinst.iso <abadger1999> i'm not able to do an install -- I get a kernel oops while booting. <abadger1999> This is in virt-manager -- x86_64 processor, kvm, x86_64
- abadger1999 tries x86 arch
<adamw> abadger1999: huh. i think it was tested. <red_alert> I know of people who were using TC1 and TC2 netinst...no idea about rc1 <abadger1999> Still bad. <abadger1999> trying to unpack the rootfs <abadger1999> IIRC, I got this when I built my rawhide vm too... that's why I ended up installing F14 and then upgrading. <red_alert> maybe another 32bit problem? ;)
- abadger1999 goes to find the x86_64 netinstall.
- abadger1999 checks if qemu works where kvm didn't
<wwoods> abadger1999: how much RAM? <abadger1999> wwoods: 512MB <wwoods> not enough <wwoods> F15 will need at least 640MB <wwoods> maybe 768 <abadger1999> wwoods: Okay.
- abadger1999 makes a vm with more ram
<abadger1999> wwoods: Is that something we can have the virt-manager guys change as a default? <wwoods> I have a fix for that in the works but it's kind of invasive and may not be ready 'til F16 <wwoods> probably! <wwoods> ISTR they do per-OS defaults, so we could have them default to 640/768MB specifically for Fedora 15 guests <abadger1999> <nod> <abadger1999> Sounds good.
- abadger1999 booting netinstall with more memory now
<abadger1999> wwoods: thanks! that was exactly the issue. <wwoods> yeah, we're going to be seeing a lot of that one <wwoods> tell your friends
<adamw> you get all kinds of weirdness trying to run f15 in 512MB <adamw> it seems like it's nearly but not quite enough :) <adamw> should probably mention that in commonbugs too <fenrus02> adamw, 32b or 64b? <adamw> fenrus02: 64 <fenrus02> adamw, limited testing, but i think it works if you do not use lvm
<wwoods>initrd.img is ~350 MB Uncompressed
This may be related to the fact that anaconda no longer has a stage 2 (from nirik fedora-qa)02/26/2011
