Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-03 12:54:33 EDT
It works if you specify them manually, right?
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-08-03 12:57:16 EDT
It works fine to specify them when asked for them -- just not on the
kernel command line.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-03 12:58:56 EDT
What's the last bit on tty3 when it segfaults?
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2004-08-03 13:20:32 EDT
* sending dhcp request through device eth0
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-03 13:40:20 EDT
Committed something to CVS that might fix it (not exactly sure where
you're hitting it and I don't have a spare laptop at home to test
with).  Will be in tomorrow's tree.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2004-08-05 06:51:35 EDT
Today's rawhide tree (including
anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040803165421.i386.rpm) still shows the problem. 
No difference.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2004-08-17 08:07:08 EDT
This still happens.  anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040813144102.i386.rpm

Comment 11 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-25 11:13:21 EDT
Worked in my test case, will look at more 
Comment 12 Chris Lumens 2006-03-02 10:30:20 EST
Is this still happening with test3?  We have some better debugging stuff in the
loader now that should at least allow us to narrow down where the segfault is
