Description madbladder 2000-01-05 02:55:40 UTC
I've had a problem installing red hat linux 6 from the disk that came with
the red hat linux book. When it starts installing it gives me an error
saying that an RPM file is missing. Later in the installation, It quits.
This is what it says:

Install exited abnormally...recievced signal 7
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
unmounting file system
You may safely reboot your system.

I rebooted and restarted 8 times, changing minor setting details each time.
It came up every time. I think there is a missing file on the cd.

A signal 7 implies that the system is out of system memory (RAM) so that is the
reason that the install fell over.  Try the install with more memory in the
machine and you should not have any problems.
