Re: Report on 2.2.5 boot-floppies


Thanks for the report. Many of these problems were reported already, and we
are working on them.

When do you see this message? (between which steps)

What kind of hardware do you have on the machine? is this an IDE only
system? Does it have any "special" devices?

The fact that you had so many "hangs" while installing makes me think the
kernel is acting funny on your system. Can you try the other (vanilla)
flavor of the boot floppies and let us know how that goes?
