Description Simon-Claudius Wystrach 2016-06-12 22:12:06 UTC
Multiple users have reported that they're unable to install the most recent Tumbleweed snapshot. The installation process does not progress beyond 'preparing disks'. The problem exist for the net installer, as well as the DVD version.

I don't know when exactly the issue occurred first, but it must have been a few snapshots ago, some time within the last two weeks (I did a successful install around then).

There are multiple threads about it on the forums, e.g.:

- https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/518251-New-instalation-hangs-on-partitioning
- https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/518336-Tumbleweed-installation-hangs-at-partition-creation
- https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/518322-Unable-to-install-Tumbleweed

openSUSE Leap does not have this issue.

I'm looking into providing installation logs.

My system: Intel NUC, Skylake i5, 32 GB RAM. Samsung EVO 850 SSD (500GB)

Could you check what parted does at this point? If strace is available in installation image, just use "strace -p 5140"; otherwise "cat /proc/5140/syscall" will at least provide syscall number. "ps -el" will also give some hint what it is waiting for.
