Description Milan Kerslager 2008-04-17 12:50:16 EDT
_FORTIFY_SOURCE causes loader in Anaconda bomb out at early stage of system
install when "lang=cs" is used. Other languages are probably broken too (at
least Rawhide, latest Rawhide snapshot and Fedora Beta, IIRC). I'm using this
parameter in my kickstart files along with PXE boot.

The error message is: %n writable segment detected

This seems to be a problem when translator's and output encodings are not the
same (as I digged around). Without the parameter 9-Beta Anaconda installer works.
