Description manuel 2000-04-27 14:41:08 UTC
When installing redhat 6.2 in a alphastation 200 any way you try to install
it fails (it works with redhat 6.0  and it doesen't with 6.1 neither).
If xinstalation start (cd nfs..) when the x starts, nothing happends. No
problem report in any terminal, the mose works, but it does nothing.
When trying a text instalation (cd, ftp, nfs):
cd (boot dka400 -fi /kernels/generic.gz -fl "root=/dev/scd0 text") it
mounts the file system, read only and the time setting, hangs.
cd ftp and nfs(boot dva0 -fl 0) choosing cd,ftp or nfs instalation after
typing root's pasword, the system does nothing. Again no error messages.

I'm seeing exactly this same behavior on my Multia. (166MHz, 64 MB RAM, 2 GB IDE
drive, no SCSI.) Bug 8180 may be the same issue as this.

Passed to test lab for verification.
