Description of problem:
I have unsuccessfully attempted to install RedHat Linux several times
on an older Gateway 2000 computer. The computer has a 400mhz Celeron
processor and about 64M of RAM. The install goes fine until I try to
partition the disk. When it gets to the part where it wants to
partition the disk automatically, using the wizard, or using fdisk,
it will crash. If I choose automatically, it will usually crash just
before the installation of the files, if I choose the wizard, it will
usually crash just before the change would take place, and if I
choose fdisk it crashes immediatly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start installation of RedHat.
2.Choose typical installation.
3.Choose to automatically have Linux partition out your drive for you.
Actual Results: I get a crash dump that says to save the information
to a disk and submit a bug report to the website. Then anaconda stops
and the OS shuts down.
Expected Results: The installation of all the packages should have
How does it crash?
Also, please note that Red Hat Linux 8.0 is an end of lifed product.
