Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13675
installation crashes with signal 11 if zip drive present
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
On all Dell systems tested, if there is a zip drive
on either IDE chain then the installation fails with
a signal 11 error.
Same here; I have an ATAPI ZIP drive in this machine (on /dev/hdc).
Trying to install Winston Beta-3 on an Intel Seattle 2 (440BX) mobo, 128MB RAM,
Adaptec 2940UW with one (narrow) SCSI CD-ROM, and one IDE (ATAPI) CD-RW.
Regardless of whether I use boot.img or bootnet.img, and whether a CD is actually
present in one of the two drives or not, the install crashes with signal 11:
install exited abnormally -- recieved signal 11
sending termination signals...done
NB: the "recieved signal 11" typo is yours, not mine. :-)
The F3 console has:
* probing for ide floppies
* found IDE floppy hdc
Confirmed; if I disable the IDE controller to which the ZIP is connected (in the
BIOS), I get past this problem.
The .new-boot.img boot disk posted by Erik Troan today appears to solve this
problem; when I boot with it I get past the crash point.
Fixed in CVS, and in the updated boot images.
Confirmed fixed in Pinstripe Beta-5. Thanks!
