Description Mike McLean 2003-10-27 17:38:13 EST
* Cambridge-re1027.0
* Dell PE2300 (old porkchop)

loader segfaults almost immediately.  You see the "running
/sbin/loader" message, then the screen blanks and restores, then you
see the message "install exited abnormally -- recieved signal 11"

This was not happening last week.

Last lines on tty3/tty4?
Comment 3 Mike McLean 2003-10-27 17:57:00 EST
Looks like it is happening on the Dell PE2400 as well.  The following
is from that machine:

* modules to insert: cdrom ide-cd
* loaded cdrom from /modules/modules.cgz
* loaded ide-cd from /modules/modules.cgz
* inserted /tmp/cdrom.o
* inserted /tmp/ide-cd.o
* load module set done

<6> inserting floppy driver for 2.4.21-1.2108-nptl
<6> Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
<6> FDC 0 is a National Semiconductor PC87306

Does 'linux allowcddma' fix it?
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-10-27 18:51:16 EST
If so, if you can get one of them installed and have sshd running and give me a
hostname, I can see if there's a way I can avoid the loader segfaulting.

Fixed in CVS and should be in newer Yarrow trees.
Comment 9 Mike McLean 2003-11-03 17:08:41 EST
