Description of problem:
When attempting a FTP install of FC2 Test2 with anonymous
FTP login using a symbolic name (DNS), the process crashes
after several minutes with a SIG-11.

 As a test I performed the same operations using
same machine and RedHat 9.0, and RedHat 8.0 .  Both
worked with no problems at all.

- Using EPIC100 eth driver.
- Looking at the debug screens, we were able to obtain
  a DHCP lease OK.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot CD
2. specify FTP install
3. supply symbolic name instead of raw IP address

Actual Results:  after several minute delay, screen was filled with
unreadable Cyrillic
chars, but the last line said "Signal 11"

 My FTP server was never accessed.

Expected Results:  actually access FTP server.

What language are you using for the install?  What ftp server are you
Comment 2 Ron Flory 2004-04-12 08:08:44 EDT
Language:   English
FTP server: RH7.2 (x86)
Real Name:  Ron Flory [USA] (ron.flory@adtran.com)

 In truth, I suspect the issue is really a DNS lookup
problem.  If I supply a dotted-quad IP instead of a
machine name, the install continues without any 

 If I use a DNS name for ther FTP server the FTP server
is not even contacted (yes, I monitor the logs).

This is done all the time by me when testing -- are you getting a DNS
server to use when getting your dhcp lease (if you hit back, you
should see the values filled in on the newt form :)
