We (Red Hat) really need to fix this defect before next release.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-09 16:14:15 EDT
Could we get the entire traceback attached?  Looks like a duplicate of 51273 and
others, but without the rest of the information, it's hard to know for sure
Comment 3 Zeke Harris 2001-08-09 20:47:58 EDT
I can't save the traceback to disk (and not for lack of trying). The same error 
message keeps popping up (in german, so I have no idea what it says) every time 
I try to write out. The floppy *does* write, but it only nukes the disk and 
ends up not actually writing the dumpfile. I end up with a blank disk, no dump, 
and a german error message.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-08-09 23:05:06 EDT
This looks like some problem with the X configuration.  What kind of graphics
chip does this laptop have?
Comment 5 Zeke Harris 2001-08-10 11:19:52 EDT
It's a NeoMagic MagicMedia 256AV (NM2200).
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-08-13 18:25:35 EDT
Looks very similar to bug #49178, which was supposedly fixed after beta 1...
Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2001-08-14 17:20:01 EDT
Unable to reproduce on a laptop here.

We have fixed some issues with X configuration overall, it may very well fix
this issue.

Did it look like you were running in the old 640x480 16 color mode during the
install (everything was dithered and generally ugly looking)?
Comment 8 Zeke Harris 2001-08-15 14:52:32 EDT
Yep, I believe it was.
Comment 9 Michael Fulbright 2001-08-15 16:25:39 EDT
I believe this is now fixed.
