I want to install RH Linux 6.1 Sparc on a SS2 with 64MB RAM
After the Formating of the Disk the system will be install the
After the 3 rpm ( the system stops.

I see the same problem on sparc station 1 whith 64MB RAM. I have try the install
several time but alway hang at the same place after the 3 rpm (
I have even left it over night but is skill hung in the morning. Console
switching work. Is the installed wait for input from somewhere?

Could this problem be related to bug # 7737 ??
I found a workaround for that bug (which requires a second machine from which
you NFS mount the media on and then complete the install.

This is a result of a termination problem.  Please see #7494
