I was trying to install Fedora 16 XFCE the other day with a live disc (I tried both DVD and CD) and before it did anything I received an error message, which reads as follows:...

[ 22.116128] [drm: radeon dp i2c aux ch1] ERROR aux i2c too many retries. giving up. [ 22.116128] [drm: radeon dp i2c aux ch1] ERROR aux i2c too many retries. giving up.

dracut Warning: No root device "live:/dev/disk/by-label/fedora-16-x86_64-Live-XFCE.iso" found

Dropping to debug shell.

sh:can't access tty: job controll turned off dracut:/#_

... this was after I ran the disc and selected to run Fedora 16 and after the fedora logo load screen failed to finish loading. I'm not sure what the message means exactly because I'm fairly new to Linux as a whole. Any help fixing this would be greatly appreciated.

It is a dracut bug

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=766955

I suggested earlier in the above bug report that this was also an issue in F16, but, as you can see ...

I suggest you file a bug report in F16 against dracut and reference the above bug report.

I haven't seen this either. Would you please file a bug at bugzilla.redhat.com so upstream can look at it? The component will be "anaconda".

Thanks!

I have the same problem. I am moving from Fedora 14 to 16 and trying to do a clean install. I have burned the image twice, once with Nero and also with Disk Utility in OSX as I have always done.
