Re: can't install fedora 16 KDE

Did you try installing without swap space? It looks like it is experiencing some problem in creating the swap space.

---------- Post added at 09:14 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:12 AM ----------

I did a quick search and got these two ...

1. Installing the OS without enabling swap space. You can enable it after Fedora is successfully installed. Same/similar problem addressed in LinuxQuestions.org

2. Try installing with DVD instead of Live CD as noted in this bug report.

Hope this helps.
