Description of problem:
The FC3 installer crashed repeatedly with the message, when I specified a fixed IP address, netmask and gateway, on a machine with a "tulip0 / lite-on 82c168 PNIC" (from dmesg) on eth0.
/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/network_gui.py: 265: GtkWarning: file gtktable.c: line 515 (gtk_table_resize): assertion `nrows > 0 && nrows < 65535' failed
devTable = gtkTable(len/devopts, 2)
install exited abnormally
This happened 6 times in a row. I tried many combinations; here's what finally cured the problem:
1. Installed a different network card
2. Told it to ignore eth0 and use eth1 (eth0 is on the motherboard)
2. Left the configuration on DNS (which I changed to a fixed IP after
the installer finished).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3 installation CD's
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above description
Actual Results: Installer crashed and rebooted
Expected Results: It should have installed FC3
Motherboard: MSI KM4AM
MSI manual says ethernet is "VIA VT6103 LAN controller"
Crash happened using:
I don't know if it was the second network card, or switching to DNS, that made the installation finally succeed since I did both at once. Sorry I couldn't go back to experiment - I needed the computer working.
This is fixed for FC4
