Installation stalls at time syncro

Sat May 03, 2014 7:00 am

Downloaded Pidora-2014-R1 image, installed on two different SD, on both after user, root pages, when I get to Ntp server page system stalls, no way to proceeed (time is set but I can't proceed to time zone pages).

Any hint??

I ran into the same problem.
I restarted the install from scratch and disabled NTP synch. Everything went well.
Later I ran fastboot again (manually) to set the time/zone/ntp synching and it works since.

I had the same issue (getting stuck on the Date and Time step) but disabling the network Synch option did the trick for getting to the next step - but then, for me, it stalled again when clicking Forward!

I was able to 'back', then 'forward' wouldn't work! Going to come back to this another day to see if I can get Pidora running...

I too have the same issue - I've tried diabling syncing but it doesn't make any difference, the system becomes sluggish and will not proceed when I click on forward.

I had the same issue tonight. I tried Pidora on a Rasperry with 256 MB of RAM, and I was blocked by the NTP screen. Then I tried the same cardon a Raspberry with 512 MB of RAM, and it worked perfectly.

I suppose that 256 MB is not enough for anaconda....

Thanks for the reply - I had thought it might be to do with having the older model pi... back to Rasbian for now then!

I had same problem with Rpi 512MB ram model so I don't think its related to the fact yours was 256MB.

Boot times are really fast (better than on raspbian). I believe systemd helps here a lot but overall it feels a bit slower than raspbian.

Return to “Pidora / Fedora”
