Description Christian Rose 2000-07-16 20:51:06 UTC
I run the text install (using Erik's new boot disk or the old image on the
cdrom doesn't matter), select Swedish as the language, se-latin1 as the
Then I choose "Install custom system", and then, when selecting what
formatting tool I want to use; directly after I've selected Disk Druid and
hit enter, the installer crashes, leaving the background blue and

you may safely reboot your system

Yes, that <F1> string appears mixed with those messages. Everything else is
a blue screen.

This happens every time I run the beta3 text installer and on the same spot
every time, but it doesn't happen when I use the graphical install.

Tell me about your hardware, especially drive configuration.

Comment 2 Christian Rose 2000-07-16 21:18:35 UTC
General hardware info:

CPU:		Pentium 233 MMX
Memory:		96 MB
Disks:		600 MB IDE       (/ 436 MB, swap 64 MB)
		100 MB IDE
Cdrom:		24x
Video:		Matrox Mystique
NIC:		Intel Etherexpress 100+
Mouse:		Regular two-button PS/2

The 600 MB drive (reports as an IBM DALA-3540 in BIOS) is the primary master. No
further drives on the primary channel.
The 100 MB disk sits in a removable drive cage on the secondary channel, and
should be configured as primary, slave present. I can completely remove this
drive, and the bug still occurs.
The CD is on the secondary channel without any jumpering (should be slaving just
fine like it did in beta2).

I haven't had this bug with beta2.

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2000-07-18 20:38:30 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Beta-5

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-07-21 01:19:54 UTC
This was a known problem in glibc which is fixed in beta 4. Please try again
with beta 4 or 5, and let me know if it is still broken (it works fine here).

Comment 5 Christian Rose 2000-07-23 00:51:05 UTC
This doesn't happen in beta4 anymore.
I'm closing this bug.
