error message at first boot after installation
Just did a fresh install of Fedora 8 RC2, same problem here! It's a pity that
I'm not able to use Fedora 8 on my system.
About nash segfault:
dm_task_run in libdevmapper returns 0 (failure) or 1 (success).
But nash/dm.c thinks that dm_task_run returns negative value (< 0, failure) or
positive (>= 0, success). This mismatch causes the problem.
Attached patch will fixed the problem.
