Description jeld 1999-07-30 16:12:18 UTC
I have tried to install RH 6.0 on a Pentium II system using
bootnet.img. System has a 3com 3c900 card. I am running a
FreeBSD DHCP ( ISC ) server. When it gets to requesting DHCP
for an IP address I get
"install exited abnormally -- recieved signal 11"
message. On other consoles it indicates that address was
succesfully obtained from DHCP. DHCP serves IP address,
default router, DNS servers, WINS server and NetBIOS node
type 0x8. If you need more information write me.

Sorry. It looks that I have encountered the same problem as is
described in bug #4266. I have changed DHCP config and the problem
went away. This is still a bug though :) now I have to change the
dhcp.conf back and restart it just because I tried to install an RH
station :)
