Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 110698
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
I am using Redhat 9 and tryint to install it on a Pentium 4
computer. It has problems going into graphical mode, so I am trying
to install in text mode.
How to reproduce:
When I try to tell the install program to wipe out all existing
partitions and answer the final yes to the query if I really want to
do this, the system crashes with a Signal 6.
The excpetion reads:
python2.2: Objects/longobject.c:545: _PyLong_AsScaleDouble:
Assertion 'x>0.0' failed.
install exited abnormally -- received signal 6
Yes, I have done the initial optional media check on the CD and that
seems to pass.
It occur always
The system uses intel graphic systems 845, 512 MB Ram, 40 GB IDE
drive, and a CD (ATAPI-IDE drive).
Could you run memtest86 to see if there are any memory errors? SIGBUS
shouldn't be occurring when starting python...
