Description devin 1998-12-04 10:17:01 EST
I found that installing on some machines that have edo
memory some packages fail and the install continues until
it hits the dev package then it totaly dies. The bizzare
thing I discovered was that if you switch the setting in
CMOS from auto or 60ns to 70ns then they do not fail.

My original message to support@redhat.com is below:

>  Also on the i386 version, if you have EDO ram and your
> memory setting is set to 60ns it will fail every time.
> if you change the setting in CMOS to 70ns then the
install will
> not fail. This not only stands true for the devs package
> other packages as well.
