Steps to Reproduce:
1.Place Redhat Linux 7.3 Installation CD1 in CDROM drive.
2.Power PC up.
3.Press enter at boot prompt, makes no difference if text only boot is used.
Actual Results: Crashes with error given in description.
Expected Results: Installation screen.
Linux 7.0 installation (2.2.XX kernel) runs fine.
"Call trace here"
Any way to get the top 2 or so items of that ?
Also, could you try booting with typing
at the syslinux prompt where xxx is the amount of ram in your machine minus 16
Call trace is as follows:
[<c01a0398>] "Duplicate is as reported on screen"
I tried using the mem=XXXM parameter but it made no difference to the outcome.
In my case the XXX was 176 (I have 192M of RAM installed).
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
