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):
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
If grepping /proc/cmdline segfaults, that sounds like a kernel problem.
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/
