Description of problem:
An FC2 install on a Dell
Inspiron 4150 gets no further than:
3c59x ds yenta_socket pcmcia_core keybdev hid input usb-uhci usbcore
sr_mod sd_m od scsi_mod ide-cd cdrom floppy loop nfs lockd sunrpc vfat
fat cramfs vga16fb
EIP: 0060:[<c0251ffd>] Not tainted
install exited abnormally -- received signal 11
with default boot options. If "nofb pci=off acpi=off" are passed, the following
This got me to the "Do you have a driver disk?" screen. Upon selecting
"No", I get a metric boatload of Cyrillic characters against a blue
background, then back to the "install exited abnormally -- received
signal 11", then more Cyrillic garbage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot off FC2 CD.
2. Attempt install.
3. Watch anaconda crash n' burn
This is occuring on a laptop which previously had RH9 installed on it successfully.
Can you see if adding either nopcmcia or nofirewire to your boot command line
fixes it (just each separately). Also, what's the last line on tty3?
You _may_ actually be able to close this one out. Since the boot process never
got as far as the media check, I was never able to verify the media (it mounted
just fine under my RH9 box). I re-burned all three ISOs and have since
successfully installed FC 0.94 on said Dell laptop.
Okay, guessing media problem since that makes some sense based on what you've said.
