Please give complete info on how you configured networking.
i just entered on installation my local ip adress (192.168.1.10) the subnet
adress 255.255.255.0, my local computer name and the DNS IPs for my DSL Privder
(DNS 1 = 184.108.40.206 and DNS 2 = 220.127.116.11)
I tested today the textinstallation. that works fine - no crash with the the
I did that changes at Red Hat 7.3 too and i had no problems.(i do this DNS Setup
because i need a dial on demand connection)
some more information here: I have a 10/100Mbit Hub and my computer is connected
to the hub and hub is connected to SDSL Modem.
Did you install from CD or something else?
yes i installed from cd (checked md5sum on all 3 cds and all ok)
i have 3 cd drives 1x dvd rom (company=delta 12x40x)2x scsi cd-rcw recorder teac
I installed from dvd rom.It is connected as Master on secondary channel.
I'm getting this same error on my installation... I'm installing from scratch on
a Dell Inspiron 3800 notebook w/no pcmcia cards installed (i.e. no network card).
I'm more than willing to help debug the problem if you can point me in the right
can you give us the contents of /tmp/netinfo file during installation (i.e.
before the crash)? You can switch to a command prompt by pressing
Ctrl+Alt+F2, and switch back to the installer with Ctrl+Alt+F7.
neither of you are using DHCP, right?
Putting this in Needinfo, as we are awaiting feedback.
yes thats right.im not using dhcp
I've duplicated this configuration and it worked fine for me.
