Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 117278
Installer sig11's in the loader
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:37 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. ;)
What driver does this card use?
I don't have the machine with me today. I'll have to look it up when
I get home.
It uses the pcnet_cs module.
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.
Still occurring with the rawhide-20040419 tree.
This is a pretty serious regression from previous versions. We really
should fix this before going final.
