Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190134
Anconda Uses 98% Memory and Crashes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
Description of problem:
After the disk partition, anaconda starts using 9.7% of the CPU and memory
usage starts climbing. It never stops using ~9.7% and the memory continues to
climb until it uses all of it and crashes. This only occurs with RHEL 4 U3.
RHEL4 U2 works fine. I use a kickstart file with both and change only the nfs
directory where the .iso files are stored. I'm attaching the dmesg output
from using RHEL4 U2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've tried it on two different HP XW9300 machines and it happens on both
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot off of CD pointing to kickstart file.
2. Wait for crash.
I'm attaching the dump file. It looks like it will only allow one attachment
from this page of which my dmesg output is first. I'm guessing I'll be able
to attach more files after hitting the "Commit" button.

Output of dmesg from HP XW9300 using RHEL4 U2
I doesn't look like the attachment worked the first time. Here it is again.
