Description Brent Fox 2004-03-02 10:21:31 EST
I'm filing this against anaconda, but it could well be a kernel problem.

Seen with rawhide-latest.  Boot from boot.iso.  After choosing NFS as
installation type, the installer sig11's.

Seen on a Compaq Presario 1700T laptop with a LinkSys pcmcia network
adapter.  The crash does not occur if the pcmcia card is not plugged
in, but then of course network installs won't work either.  ;)
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-02 11:46:14 EST
What driver does this card use?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2004-03-02 14:06:49 EST
I don't have the machine with me today.  I'll have to look it up when
I get home.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2004-03-08 10:46:02 EST
It uses the pcnet_cs module.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2004-03-08 10:47:32 EST
At least, pcnet_cs is the module that it used with the 2.4 kernel.  I
don't know if this has changed with 2.6 or not.

I had a similar error:

Fedora Core 2, install from CDROM's, checked the MD5sum, it was fine.
Kept crashing after selecting either 'OK' or 'Skip' media test, with a
signal 11. After reading this bug, I unplugged my Linksys WPC11
wireless network card from my Dell Latitude C840. This solved the
signal 11 error, now I have new and interesting errors to figure out!
I was attempting install on top of Fedora Core 1 (which installed
using 'linux nofb' without trouble... even with the network card install.

It's still happening with the rawhide-20040331 tree.
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2004-04-19 10:41:12 EDT
Still occurring with the rawhide-20040419 tree.

This is a pretty serious regression from previous versions.  We really
should fix this before going final.

Should have been fixed by release.
