Description Joshua Brickel 2003-11-23 17:09:54 UTC
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

end quote

Yes, I have done the initial optional media check on the CD and that 
seems to pass.

How reproducible:

It occur always
Additional info:
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...
