Description Art Fore 2001-11-25 17:51:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; DigExt)

Description of problem:
Installed j2re-1_3_1_01-linux-i386.bin per instructions. After rebooting, 
get segmentation fault when I open Nautius or just about anyother program.

Upgraded to kernel 2.4.9-13, same problem

Install OpenOffice 638C with either Gnome or KDE, with or without Java, 
same problem.

All of these are after fresh re-install. I have reinstalled RH 7.2 about 
20 times in the last week. Just about when I think everything is going, go 
to the next step, something else pops up.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH 7.2
2.Install any of the above problems
4.try to open Nautilus
5.segmentation fault

Actual Results:  As described above

Expected Results:  Would like to install OpenOffice and have it work, or 
anyother program for that matter and not have Linux Crash.

Additional info:

Have read several bugs on related segmentation faults in bugzilla and on 
the internet, seems to be a common problem, especially with RH Linux. 
Seems to be workarounds for some of them (one of which I tried and did not 
work) but no real fixes.

Computer is Inspiron 8100 w/512 meg ram, 30 G hd, DVD-CDR, 3 Com PCMCIA 
modem, external USB Maxtor Harddrive.

Also cannot get linuxconf to work. Comes up with command not recognized.

All other users seem to be able to install software - it's most likely an issue
with bad hardware, or the like. In any case, can't be debugged since I can't
reproduce it.
