Description Ben Levenson 2001-03-14 23:31:12 UTC
build qa0314.1
Installer exits abnormally.
Verified with 3 sets of floppies and two different systems.
FWIW, I had no problems installing from the rawhide-20010313 tree last
night.
Part of the boot message:
...

What kind of hardware is on this system?

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-03-15 22:36:06 UTC
This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence Gold.

I bet you it's trying to detect the disks and can't do it
what the controller on that board?

I bet this is the kudzu fallover I see.


Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-29 22:38:08 UTC
I thought you weren't seeing that on a clean tree...

Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2001-04-06 17:56:57 UTC
Is this fixed or not?

Comment 8 Phil Copeland 2001-04-06 18:57:11 UTC
I've not seen a reoccurance of this behaviour on any of the equipment I have
with the newer versions. So unless anyone objects, I'd close this bug
