After selecting "install a new system or upgrade an existing system" the installation process completely halts at "waiting for hardware to initialize." I looked this up and tried various boot options which frankly, I don't know what exactly they do. Setting "nomodeset" changed nothing as did various others like "noefi". When "ignore_loglevel" was set, the progress went a little further past "waiting for hardware to initialize" stopping after this:
[15.106386] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IQR 18
[15.106639] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: setting latency timer to 64

From what I've gathered from looking this issue up for the past few days, it is probably a graphics card issue. However, I did remove my graphics card and tried using the input directly to the motherboard and had similar issues. I'm not sure what other information is relevant but I can try to relay as much as I can if it is needed.
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire AS5517-5671 laptop [URL] Every time I try to install Fedora 12 it gets to the waiting for hardware to initialize then restarts. (using the F12 DVD) Ive tried both the default installation method and the basic video drive options
Ive successfully install OpenSuSe 11.2 on the laptop with little trouble however. So any idea if there is a work around, or is my laptop not compatible with F12?
I was trying to intall Fedora-11-x86_64-DVD. But during intallation a line shows "waiting for hardware to initalize... " & then stops processing. I waited for 1 hour but nothing happens. What should I do? How to install fedora on my system... Pentium D 2.8Ghz 1gb ram
im trying to install FC15x64 over PXE and have 2 PCs , one is ok and second hangs right after "Waiting for hardware to initialize" with mess on screen i made a video so you can see: [URL] this is lshw output on FC12 on problem PC: work.massa.in.ua/lshw.txt
I have a problem in red Hat installation, I have windows 7 installed in my PC,I want to dualboot it with linux. whenever I try to boot linux from DVD, I have the following message after some time "waiting for hardware to initialize" and the installation stops.What would be the problem for this? I have the following system configuration ASUS P5B WIFI AP motherboard. core 2 duo E4500 processor 2Gigs of RAM Nvidia geforce 9400GT GFX card.
I would like to build up a multi boot system with 11.3 on ASUS M2N32 WS motherboard inclusive NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI RAID controller and Marwell 88SE614xSATA connectors.The problem is that if I built up the RAID-1 arrays (2x500, 2x1000) it cannot be seen from Suse install. As far as I investigated the nForce driver is in 11.3, but in this case why the installation hangs (no reset button, only power off). Sorry I cannot provide you a log, becuase the installation procedure goes to the restart, the system restarts, and Grube says error 15 or 21.
There is no sound card listed in "lspci" and also I receive this error when I use dmesg command: [15.012010] AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET [15.012017] AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer. [15.012024] Unable to initialize codec #0
I am having problems with an old laptop I have. It had windows xp on it, and after loaning it to a friend it wouldn't boot up. I decided to try linux, but I'm having problems loading it. If I try to run the liveCD it halts because its unable to mount root. If I try to install it just doesnt work well (will stop at different points).
So I figured a mem test would help. I am running the test, currently its on test #6, but it is coming up with a ton of errors. Does this mean I need to replace the RAM?
If so, this is the computer I have. Will this RAM work? I've been out of the tech game for awhile so not really following hardware anymore, and just want to double check.
I receive following error when trying to enable strigi. "strigi service failed to initialize, most likely due to installation problem" I have searched internet, obviously not good enough, and i have found nothing. Nothing that would work. i have tried installing openjdk-devel as suggested, soprano. And still nothing. I have same problems on both boxes running Fedora 12.
I've just tried to upgrade my Fedora 9 (x86_64) installation to Fedora 10 using the installation DVD. The upgrade seemed to proceed very smoothly, no errors ,nor warnings, it just seemed that it is upgrading grub (yes, I chose to upgrade grub as well) and all the packages (it took about 20 minutes). However, after the upgrade was over, it asked me to reboot my computer, so that's what I did, I took out the DVD and waited for GRUB to load.
It loaded just fine, but I was quite surprised when there was no option to boot Fedora 10 in the list. Ok, so I booted into Fedora 9 which went fine, the layout changed to the new one and some programs don't run. When I looked into /lib/modules I couldn't see any fc10 kernel installed. So the question is what happened and what should I do, so that it upgrades to fc10?
After an online upgrade from f11 to f13, on rebooting the setup attempts to configure the wireless connection and fails with a not very illuminating "error configuring your network interface" notice, offering no option but to go back and try again, which of course fails again with the same error.
Wireless card is a D-link that works fine with the ath5k driver in f11.
how I can get out of this vicious cycle and proceed with booting the upgrade?

I have been beating my head against a wall with this for more than an hour.... I purchased a new Ethernet Card to bump up the other side of my network from 10/100 to Gigabit. I previously had a 3c905c 3com card in there before. the chipset I purchased was a realtek 8169 Gigabit..... I removed the old card and put the new one in. Then I ran netconfig but realized that it was holding onto eth0 with 3com's MAC address, so I went and removed the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file. did a service network restart no eth0 trying to start - perfect... I reran netconfig and configured eth0 with all it settings "Netconfig Did recognise the Realtek 8169"
I saw device not initalized when doing an ifup eth0 So I lsmod and saw the 3com module still running - removed the module rmmod 3com - and checked for 8169 - not running... modprobe 8169 and then checked.. bingo its running... service network restart - same error r8169 device eth0 does not seem to be present... delaying initialization. ok - eff it - ill reboot It came up same thing - did not expect it to change... checked /etc/modprobe.conf - i see its aliased... Verified all things are running... I really don't know where to turn... Im sure I could just call it eth2 but then im going to be rewriting all my iptables "firewall rules" and im trying to avoid that.... ** yes I know I could just use sed to replace all eth0 with eth2 ** but then im not learning why and what i am missing...
I have an electricity issue i.e Electric Power stops ocassionaly (Load Shedding). If the system was running when electricity went. But when the power comes back, the system starts and opensuse stops before login screen on console screen where it requires root password and then fsck for filesystem. Is there anyways to avoid it?
I am having some issues installing Kubuntu 10.10 64bit, I have tried two ISO's from different mirrors, multiple writable disks (seriously I had to go buy another 20 pack) and the install halts at the exact same point each time.I have run multiple HDD checking tools using Hirens 9.9 boot CD, I have recreated and formated the partitions twice but still each time the install will stop at 61% stating there was an error copying files and to check the media.
I grabbed the ISO's from Kubuntu.org and the second one from the NZ mirror ftp.citylink.co.nz in the hopes that maybe the image came down corrupt - the disk check before installing cannot find anything wrong yet it still happens ... its very upside down face
Using Debian Lenny. I'm trying to label my usb flash drives. I checked on the Internet and found a page, but I can't get it to work: [URL]. I umounted the usb drive. I checked it with Debian:~# blkid /dev/sda1: UUID="B1CC-3C4F" TYPE="vfat"
But when I try to make a label I get this message: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize '::' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive
If I try mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC when the drive is mounted I get this output: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Total number of sectors (7855032) not a multiple of sectors per track (62)! Add mtools_skip_check=1 to your .mtoolsrc file to skip this test but no label is attached to the drive.
I added this to /etc/mtools.conf: drive p: file=/dev/sdb1 and ran this command: mlabel p:VFAT_DOC and still can't get it to work Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize 'P:' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive

I've installed libqt4-gui, libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-sound1.2, libqt4-network to meet the dependency requirements. I've tried the pre-made binary from the Web site (http://qtads.sourceforge.net/downloads.shtml) as well as my own compiled from source (a binary which has proven to work on other machines also with Debian).
Ive tried to install ubuntu via wubi. When it boots and i select ubuntu it starts the final installation tasks. But halts with no rootfs defined and says i need to define one. However it wont continue to boot obviously so am unable to do so. My PC does have raid but its switched off in the bios. I know dual booting is one way to go but would prefer initially to have it in the file. I can boot into the demo version and there is an install option there but doesnt offer my boot disk.
Trying to install the Suhosin module with the php 5.2.9 c5-testing repo...it won't run with the php 5.2.9 testing build (there isn't an updated suhosin package against the 5.2.9 build)
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: suhosin: Unable to initialize module Module compiled with module API=20050922, debug=0, thread-safety=0 PHP compiled with module API=20060613, debug=0, thread-safety=0
What's the best way to handle this from an admin best practices standpoint? I want to do everything possible to keep the suhosin module tracked by yum for future updating etc. Is it best to try to find a suhosin rpm that is built for 5.2.9 and install it with yum localinstall? If not, if I build the module myself, what's the best path to keeping yum/rpm in the loop on this install for future updating via yum?
When I upgraded to CentOS5.2 from 5.1, puplet quit working:

I'm trying to update an older laptop for my nephew. It was running Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS) successfully.
However, after installing a clean copy of Lucid Lynx (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS), the boot process halts almost immediately with a black screen. There is no blinking cursor and no hard-drive activity.
When I hold down the "Shift" key after the rebooting the computer, I'm able to edit the grub2 boot options.
When I remove the "quiet" boot option, I'm able to see about a page of text before the boot process halts and displays the black screen. Here is the last bit of text that appears just before the black screen:
At this point, the font style changes slightly. Then the text is replaced by the solid black screen. There is no blinking cursor, and the hard drive activity ceases.
I've tried booting in rescue mode: This also halts at a solid black screen.
This is an older laptop: I had to boot the installation disc with the boot option "noapic" in order for the installation disc to run.
However, the installation seemed to run normally. I was able to finish installing the system. But, after removing the installer disc and rebooting, we were met with that solid black screen almost immediately after booting.
I used the minimal install disc: [URL]
I've verified the MD5 checksum for the disc image. And I've successfully used this same disc to install Ubuntu for my mother.
But my little nephew is left without a usable system.
