After about 10 mins into the install of Cpanel, I get:

Waiting for updated to finish


that just scrolls down the screen... if i hit ctrl c it just stops and nothing has been installed.

repeating cpanel install does same thing.

what do i need to look at first?

Copy the /scripts directory from a similar server.... put it in place in /scripts on the server that is experience this.

Or try this:
rsync -av rsync://rsync.cpanel.net/scripts /scripts


It's just hanging because it had an issue copying files to /scripts on the new box in question........ permissions perhaps?

I'm having the same problem on EVERY server I've been installing cpanel on in the last 5 days.

freezes on upgrading perl

Hi. I am trying to test the new release beta. I have a clean install of redhat 6.2 on a raid 5 array (3) 18GB using dell openmanage cd on a poweredge 2450. I has either 512 or 1024 memory i forget and dont want to reboot again. I just tryed to rsync using the method posted. The problem is that it continues to freeze on the upgrading perl. It is installing again and will see if this continues. If you have seen this or know of a fix please let me know. Thanks

Why are you using RH 6.2 ?
Put 7.2 on there, it's working near perfect- especially if you are on a fresh install, definitely go with 7.2 right off the bat, you will save yourself mucho headaches in the future.

RH 7.2 and filesystem type ext3

If you still have freezes on installs/compiling you probably have bad memory or a bad RAID card, in all honesty. Or you installed RedHat from a faulty CD.

Upgrading perl can take up to 30 mins .. its probably not frozen.. just give it some time.

frozen

I left it overnight and it was still stuck. The reason im not using 7.2 is because the openmanage cd only does 6.2 or 7. I need this to make the kickstart disk which loads the raid.

Bad memory or raid card- if you do simple installs of perl/etc and you restart (or maybe not even that), and you start getting modload errors, your machine is likely SOL from the start.

I wouldn't waste more time with it
Just in past experience, the way to go here is to start from scratch or you will be caught in a cycle that time forgot.

bad raid

The system is not bad. It runs win 2000 server with raid fine. Maybe just should not run linux with the raid. Im going to install 7.2 with the raid and try but otherwise I will try it without. Anyone with suggestions let me know.

One question for you. You don't use 7.2 because you need to make a kickstart file, right? Since when does 7.2 not support kickstart files? It also supports kickstart RAID partitioning. The simplest way might be to run 7.2 and just make a new kickstart file.
