Kernel panic (in IPv6?) during Fedora 9 Alpha 1 Install
Last modified: 2008-08-12 18:59:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Kernel panic in (apparently) IPv6 network stack during installation onto a
VMWARE virtual machine configured with NAT networking. I'll attach a screen shot
but, unfortunately, some of the kernel oops is truncated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9 Alpha 1 Live CD
Hit this on 2 of 4 boots of the Live CD.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure VMWARE virtual machine with NAT networking (which may not be
2. Boot live CD into virtual machine.
3. Kernel sometimes panics after boot completes and login prompt is presented.
Due a separate vmware bug in the graphical installer, the install fortunately
stays in text mode. Otherwise I bet the result would be a hung install.
