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):
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
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
FTP server: RH7.2 (x86)
Real Name: Ron Flory [USA] (email@example.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 :)
