Description Andrew Parker 2005-06-19 10:44:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
I am trying to install FC4, via NFS, on my Sony Vaio PCG-Z600TEK (700MHz, 256M) and it fails immediately after getting or assigning an IP address with "install exited abnormally -- received signal 11"

This problem exists with NFS, HTTP, FTP installs images/boot.iso, rather than the whole DVD/CS.  It does not happen with an install from CD, unless I try to install it with the vnc option - again it fails immediately after getting/assigning an IP address.

It does not make a difference if I manually assign an IP address, or if one is obtained with DHCP.

This bug did not exist on FC4 test 1, but does exist on FC4 test 3.  I do not know about FC4 test 2.  If it would help you if I tried that, it would not be a problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install from FC4 images/boot.iso
2.  Select any install method that requires network
3.  Enter IP info, install crashes.

Actual Results:  Installation crash

Expected Results:  No crash

Is this with wireless or wired?  Are there any error messages on tty3 or tty4?
Comment 2 Andrew Parker 2005-06-21 03:38:44 EDT

No error messages on any tty.  Will create some attachments in case there is
anything of use there.

I tried FC4T2, and the problem exists there too.

After the SIGSEV is reported, the host is pingable.

Please test with one of the upcoming FC5 test releases.  We've fixed a
segmentation fault or two in the loader so I believe this may be taken care of.

Looks like this problem has been fixed.  Thanks.
