loader segfault with "ks essid=... wepkey=..."
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:46 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to initiate a kickstart installation over WEP-encrypted
wifi, /sbin/loader segfaults.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with "ks essid=[my_essid] wepkey=[my_wepkey]"
It works if you specify them manually, right?
It works fine to specify them when asked for them -- just not on the
kernel command line.
What's the last bit on tty3 when it segfaults?
* sending dhcp request through device eth0
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.
Today's rawhide tree (including
anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040803165421.i386.rpm) still shows the problem.
This still happens. anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040813144102.i386.rpm
This still happens. anaconda-10.0.3.16-1.i386.rpm
Committed something to fix this to CVS
No, still happens with anaconda-10.2.0.64-1.i386.rpm.
Worked in my test case, will look at more
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
