RH 7.2.90 TUI install from CD

- select any language , except Japanese or Korean
- on the next screen ( kbd-config ) click BACK
- repeat about 10 times
- select Japanese language
A message appears for a split second :
You are running on a live ???? system ?????? ( couldn't remember more,
it disappeared too quickly )

Then a shutdown is performed.

Is this for Hampton beta 1?

Comment 2 David Balažic 2002-03-05 08:32:31 UTC
yes,Hampton beta 1

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-13 22:13:44 UTC
Don't do that then.  Everytime you go back into Japanese mode, you restart kon
and we have safeguards in place to keep people from blowing their system away
based on pid (if pid > 90, chances of you being in the installed system are
low).  There really is no reason to be so wishy-washy about what language you're

Comment 4 David Balažic 2002-03-14 08:46:46 UTC
But I am not going _back_ into Japanese. I am going into Japanese only once !
But I guess the pid check still sees pid > 90 , so that explains it.

Could not reproduce it in beta3.
