Description fitzhugh 2001-10-18 11:03:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)

Description of problem:
I loaded RH 7.1 on a Dell Latitude C800, and when I boot the system, after hardware setup and RedHat enters rc.sysinit, the system halts 
with the following message: etc/rc.sysinit : line 166: 65 segmentation fault grep -iq "nousb" /proc/cmdline 2>/dev/null

I get the same results when I boot from the boot diskette that I made at the end of the installation process.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the system

Actual Results:  boot process halts resulting in the message shown in the description

Expected Results:  the system should have booted and I could use linux that i paid for.

Bug misfiled against wrong component, reassigning to initscripts
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-30 14:24:12 EST
If grepping /proc/cmdline segfaults, that sounds like a kernel problem.
Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:12 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
