Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to do an update of an old FC system to FC6 rc1 with askmethod and
FTP. The system reports a glibc error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC6 RC1 disk 1
Boot with options linux askmethod and select FTP
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with option linux askmethod
2. Select method FTP
3. Select correct nic
4. Enter network settings, static ip used in this case.
Typing of the screen
*** glibc detected *** /sbin/loader: corupted double-linked list: 0x08289b18
A nice download and a updated system.
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.
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.
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.
