Description of problem:
Hi guys, using the May 12 boot.iso from 
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/i386/os/imag
es/boot.iso I have encounted a SIGSEGV during mirror selection.

(n.b. If I've placed this in the wrong place, please accept my appologies and 
reroute it)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): May12


How reproducible:
Always that I can tell

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot boot.iso and select English (language)->us (keymap)->HTTP (download 
method)
2. When prompted for IPv4/IPv6 Auto/Manual settings detection set IPv4 to 
manually specify
3. Tab to cancel (sub bug: when empty, it complains about invalid input, not 
good when a NA realises he/she specified the wrong option ;))
4. This brings you back to Configure TCP/IP, once again, hit Back

  
Actual results:
On point 3, in my opinion it should return to how it was before you pressed Ok 
the first time (i.e. cursor at Manual IPv4 which is still selected)
On point 4, a SIGSEGV will happy with the following message:

loader received SIGSEGV!  Backtrace:
[0x80482a4]
[0xc5c420]
[0x81d05d2]
[0x80499ae]
[0x8172588]
[0x8048131]
install exited abnormally [1/1]
sending termination signals...done
--SNIP--

Expected results:
To return to method selection

Additional info:
Tested on VMware Server 1.0.1 (build 299996) - yes I know it's old but it 
works, the image is assigned 8GB of Diskspace and 256MB of RAM
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2007-05-22 16:22:57 EDT
Is this happening with the latest Fedora development trees?
Comment 2 Nigel Jones 2007-05-22 20:10:58 EDT
Yes.

May 22 boot.iso has the exact same issue

Backtrace is now:

[0x80482a4]
[0x6c5420]
[0x81d0872]
[0x80499ae]
[0x804a978]
[0x81725d8]
[0x8048131]
Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2007-05-23 16:07:44 EDT
Dito, able to reproduce this report in actual and older boot.iso files by 
hitting back twice.
