Description Jay Freeman 1999-07-10 04:21:27 UTC
During the setup process the kernel generates oop's during
package installations, however it does not seem to generate
them on the same packages each time.  The first time we
(myself and a friend installing rawhide on his machine) got
this problem was during a check for bad blocks on his
harddrive.  After not doing the check for bad blocks, we
got the package installation part.  I built the setup disk
off of rawhide.redhat.com's archive but was using
rpmfind.net's mirror because the setup package wasn't on
rawhide.redhat.com.  The oops was:

I just tried using an old bootdisk that was sitting around from
RedHat 1.4.0, and it still didn't work, so it isn't specific to this
version.  This is a pentium III 500 with an 18.2 gig harddrive.  This
time it crashed badblocks during the check, but would continue with
the next drive, which would crash, and then it would continue again.
It is really strange behavior :).

I would call that a hardware problem (bad memory? SCSI termination
