Followup FYI -- I then did an Install, with no incident -- which appears to rule
out media and SCSI driver issues.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-06 17:28:31 EST
What architecture are the processors?
Comment 5 R P Herrold 2002-03-06 22:58:18 EST
2 x P-150 (true Intel -- consequetive serial number from the same lot)
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-13 17:09:22 EST
Does this still happen with beta2?
Comment 7 R P Herrold 2002-03-13 21:26:40 EST
will test tomorrow
Comment 8 R P Herrold 2002-03-14 08:52:02 EST
Mampton B2 - clean Mediacheck - Still no problem with a cold Install on a wiped
partition table -- will build and test an Upgrade next this morning
Comment 9 R P Herrold 2002-03-14 09:09:01 EST
!!! WHAT !!! -- I spoke prematurely -- about 2/3 of the way through disk 1 on a
plain workstation Install, with Gnome de-selected -- all the rest stock defaults
-- it dumped out of X -- no traceback -- and left a mssage on console 1

    the install has terminated abnormally

... no offer of an anaconda traceback capture -- no nothing -- the terminal in
console 2 was dead, so I could not poke around.


Is there a way to install within a chrooted VM so I can do a better post-mortem?
Comment 10 R P Herrold 2002-03-14 11:07:44 EST
rebuilt prior test state -- testing
Comment 11 R P Herrold 2002-03-14 14:14:21 EST
As to the Upgrade SMB kernel error -- the uncaught exception 
issue is gone and this ticket may be closed.

(There IS a new issue on the grub/lilo not properly handling boot 
and root partition matters correctly, wihch I will file in a moment, and 
cross note here)
