Description of problem:
Trying to install 7.3 on 5 ibm thinkpad 755cse machines, the install process
exits every time when running /sbin/loader. Error message as follows:
install exited abnormally -- received signal 11
VC4 shows the last step as:
looking for usb controllers
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make 7.3 install floppies
2. boot machine
3. watch installation exit
OK, after reading some of the other bugs and lots of rebooting I can get past
the sig11 in the bootup by passing nousb (the machines have no usb at all).
With that I can get part of the way into a network install before getting
another sig11. It transfers over netstg1.img fine, finds the network card gain,
then VC3 reports:
* load module set done.
* looking for video cards requiring agpgart module
This doesn't seem to be the same regardless of trying a text install or passing
noprobe on the boot line. Is there any way I can avoid probing for this hardware?
How much RAM does the box have?
Well 32MB is the minimum supported for installs. Sorry if you were given the
impression this would work.
