I am trying to install a CentOS 6.4 x86_64 VM using a CentOS 5.9 x86_64
host, but its install has froze *twice*. What I am doing is to create a
10gig LVM volume, which I put a MS-DOS partition table on (using fdisk). I then format the only partition to ext3, install grub and install the pxeboot kernel and initrd.img and a simple grub.conf to load this.
I have the CentOS 6.4 x86_64 ISOs mounted (via loop) and exported as NFS file systems:
3.6G 3.6G 0 100% /CentOS64i386/1
1.1G 1.1G 0 100% /CentOS64i386/2
4.1G 4.1G 0 100% /CentOS64x86_64/1
1.4G 1.4G 0 100% /CentOS64x86_64/2
sauron.deepsoft.com% sudo exportfs
I am able to boot up the installer and have it NFS mount the first DVD
and things go fine util it installs selinux-policy-targeted-3.7.19-195.el6.noarch. The VM is busy for a while, then the CPU usage goes to zero and it just sits there.
What am I doing wrong?
This worked just fine with the 32-bit version of CentOS 6.4.
Is it because some package from the second disk is needed? Do I have to create a merged version of the DVDs? Or is something else wrong?
