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,
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH 7.2
2.Install any of the above problems
4.try to open Nautilus
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.
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
