text installer crashes after selecting "Disk Druid"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
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
install exited abnormally -- recieved signal 11

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.
General hardware info:
CPU: Pentium 233 MMX
Memory: 96 MB
Disks: 600 MB IDE (/ 436 MB, swap 64 MB)
100 MB IDE
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.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Beta-5
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).
This doesn't happen in beta4 anymore.
I'm closing this bug.
