#149 closed System Defect (invalid)

Install continous reboot cycle - screen saver display blanking bug?

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: kris
Priority: blocker Milestone: 8.0
Component: Installer Version: 8.0-ALPHA
Keywords: Cc:


The install continuously reboots in a cycle when left unattended, possibly due to no console (keyboard/mouse) activity timing out.

I had never ending reboots unless I sat at the computer and kept the mouse moving periodically. Thus, an activity idle timeout seems to cause reboot repeatedly during installation. Not sure, but it may only occur during the file installation step.

Possible solution: disable blanking/screen saver like operations during install phase.

  • Milestone set to 8.0

  • Version changed from 7-BETA1 to 8.0-ALPHA

Can confirm with 8.0-alpha-12.15.09-x32 similar thing here - installation to laptop, but not reboot, shutdown instead.
Got it twice, battery was full and adapter was used.

Need more details. I've left an install running overnight without a reboot here... any error message?
