Description macsaint 2000-06-18 20:28:34 UTC
I installed redhat in my laptop "Dell latitude XPi CD."

First time, I succeeded in installation using boot diskette and CD. 
However when I tried re-install from the same boot diskette and CD. It 
showed me error like belows:


running /sbin/loader   <- until this, it seemed to work well.
install exited abnormally - received signal 11.
sending termination signals --- done
sending kill signal --- done
ejecting cdrom
you may safely reboot your system


My laptop has CD-driver, but it is not possibel to boot from CD. I 
installed just linux without M$ product.

Please give me a solution. 

Thank you.

the installer, when it fails as you describe, is executing a "loader" program
from the floppy drive (from the initrd.img file on the floppy) ...

could you try booting from the floppy w/out the CD in the CDROM drive, and wait
until the installer prompts you to insert it ...?

if you get the same error in this case too, then could you try another boot
floppy ...?  If the installer fails the above case and your original case, then
I would strongly suspect a bad floppy (yes, even though it installed for you
before! :-( )

hope this helps ... thanks for your report!
