Description Daniel Hammer 2001-05-31 22:15:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-7 i686)

Description of problem:
Installing RH 7.1 on my "Dell Inspiron 3200" crashes when the
install process comes to the point where the SysVinit-2.78-15
package should be installed. I get: 
"install exited abnormally
sending termination signals ... " etc.

How reproducible:

Genrally, the installation process only works when choosing
"expert" modus; at all other modi the install exited before
it came to install various chosen packages.

I tried nearly any possible setting (automated install/partition,
user defined install etc. & get always the same result when (or maybe
directly after) SysVinit-2.78-15 should be installed.
On the same notebook I can install any Red Hat version 
<= 7.0 without any problems.

This just confirms bug 36123 ... No solution is found yet.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-06-01 01:36:01 UTC
In any case, it's an installer problem, not a sysvinit problem.

Comment 3 Daniel Hammer 2001-06-01 03:38:45 UTC
O.k., in this case (with "normal" install) and even on a Compaq machine, where
the installer ran through I saw some lines rushing over the screen pointing on
some Gtk(+) error.
Btw, Mandrake 8.0 runs through perfectly - is just horrobly slow.

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-06-01 03:54:00 UTC
Can you look on VC3 and VC4 and see if you see any error messages?
