The message clearly states that glibc *detected* the problem.  It not a problem
*in* glibc.  it's the loader which has problem.  I assume it's anaconda.

Yes, it is the loader.  Please try again with rawhide.  We went through a lot of
these problems in FC6 test 1 and it's likely the one you are seeing has been
fixed in rawhide.
Comment 3 David Cantrell 2006-08-03 10:46:12 EDT
Have not heard anything from the reporter and since this is *most likely* one of
the network bugs we fixed post-FC6test1, I'm closing it.
Comment 4 Info S&R Solutions 2006-08-04 06:59:26 EDT
Due to holidays not tested before yesterday but using the development version of
2 augustus solved the ftp install problem. In the console where a lot of selinux
access denied messages. Didn't have time to look into that more closely. But I
think that is was te reason for the terrible slow install.
