I have checked this and I can't figure out how to get past this hang.
Centos 5.5 minimal install, plenty of memory and disk space. This is a XEN PVM. I was able to install once for a dev box, but it was before I had finished the network/dmz buildout. Help please.

When if gets to updating perl modules, CPU usage stops, Disk I/O stops, no network I/O

mem is fine:
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 1024 802 221 0 51 435
-/+ buffers/cache: 315 708
Swap: 4095 0 4095

Out of curiosity have you tried the cPanel installer? I have never actually used that checker but it looks like you would be fine.


You also could try to strace it and see what it is doing at the moment.
