Is there a work around?

How much memory do you have? How much swap? There's a chance that you're
running out of memory.

What sort of network connection do you have? Try installing a minimal
FC2, then getting yum to install X, Gnome, and whatever else you want.

Hope this helps,


The last computer I worked on that had this problem was due to having the SDR memory voltage, normally 3.0V, pinned out on the motherboard to the DDR memory voltage, 2.5V. After I checked te complete set of pin outs, I discovered the error, the user was playing repair man, corrected it and FC2 installed as smooth as a baby's bottom.
Check out the fundamentals on the motherboard to be sure they are set correctly. Usually, hangups during isntallation of an operating system, even blendoze, indicated a memory or voltage problem. Hope this helps.
