Description Kai 'wusel' Siering 2003-11-09 19:16:37 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031017

Description of problem:
Trying to either to a fresh installation or an upgrade from 0.95
failes with "An error occured transferring the install image ...".
On tty2 (ALT-F2), one reads "-/bin/sh: relocation error: -/bin/sh:
symbol , version GLIBC_2.0  not defined in file libc.so.6 with link
time reference"

Using the same media, upgrading an Sony Vaio Z600NE (Pentium
III-based) was a piece of cake (though the PCMCIA-CD-ROM is no longer

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take an athlon-based system, running FC 0.95
2. Boot "linux text", select either "upgrade" or "reinstall" (on a new
3. Answer any questions, wait until the error message appears; tried
three times now ...

Actual Results:  Error message appears.

Expected Results:  Installation of Fedora Core.

Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?
Comment 2 Kai 'wusel' Siering 2003-11-16 19:57:40 EST
Booting "linux mem=64M" and using the graphical installation worked.
"linux text mem=128M" or "linux text mem=64M" yielded the same error.

Seems to me that "linux text" is somewhat broken (see "relocation
error" message above; I only -- and always -- get this with "linux text").

System configuration:

AMD Duron 900, 512 MB, ECS K7S5A Mainboard.

I'll check "linux allowcddma" on next reboot.
Comment 3 Kai 'wusel' Siering 2003-11-16 20:11:17 EST
"linux allowcddma text" does not yield to the relocation error. Funny.
I didn't try re-installation since I need the system right now; I'll
try to empty a partition and test a complete installation.
Comment 4 Steven Moyse 2003-11-25 06:06:59 EST
The relocation error is not dependent on the system being athlon
based, I got the same error on my intel system.

Also the relocation error doesn't seem to cause the install image
transfer error. I still got the relocation error even though I was
able to install successfully after adding mem=64M.
