First-time Installation of Build 6321 to CentOS 7.1 hangs



  • CentOS 7.1 Minimal Server built and updated today (2016/02/18).
    Installing build 6321.

    The installation hangs at “Setting up and starting MySQL”.

    Huh… actually locked the system up into a kernel panic.

    Attempting to re-install over this failure, now fails gracefully at the same line.

    Problem solved, the /var folder was full. Now I can update the version.

    I have problems to update the version of FOG under RHEL 7 and the mysql package. Until now, I don’t have any problems to update but with the last revision I can 't install the mysql package.

  • The turkey was a turkey. I couldn’t recreate it with build 6333, so I’m moving on.



  • I’ve actually never seen a kernel panic from CentOS 7, Fedora, or Ubuntu… I’ve only seen them from machines network booting with FOG lol.



  • I agree. A kernel panic was the last thing I expected from CentOS.

    @sudburr said:

    I think I elicited a kernel panic entirely because I ctrl-c the process after it had sat there for 20 minutes without moving.

    Don’t wanna sound rude or anything but AFAIK it should not be possible to conjure up a kernel panic by stopping a script using Ctrl+C! Never! Would be great if you can get us some log files or anything useful to look at and find what’s causing the hang (and/or panic).



  • Welp, it’s really quite simple.

    I think I elicited a kernel panic entirely because I ctrl-c the process after it had sat there for 20 minutes without moving.

    The rest of it is as it says; install CentOS, install fog… hang. I’ll try and dig up log files.

    The installer does not hang when upgrading to 6321, only on a fresh install.

    I’ll throw another turkey at it later and see what happens with 6323.
