I’m attempting to install CentOS 5 via netinstall from
& it gets as far as formatting the disk but when it gets to:
‘Starting install process. This may take take several minutes…’
it hangs forever (well, a couple of hours).
Dropping down in a console I see it’s telling me:
‘Preparing to install’
then nothing. ‘top’ shows activity for Anaconda but very little.
This is on an old Poweredge 650 with 3GB’s of RAM on a secondary drive. The primary drive has CentOS 6.4 running on it quite happily so the hardware’s up to it.
I chose to install the ‘Server GUI’ packages because I was curious. Maybe herein lies my problem?
Any help appreciated.
