The above lines are the last in the comments for the old service request
#125458. The outcome for me is the same, ie. After specifying
language, etc., inserting the CD-ROM and I get the messages:
Probing for Mouse type...
AT <---This message is overwritten by the next
install exited abnormally -- received signal 11
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
you may safely reboot your system
These messages appear after I:
1. downloaded/created updated boot disk and installer from
ftp.redhat.com per service request instructions
2. entered "linux updates" at the boot prompt, again, per service
I have a running 6.0 system. If I remove the boot disk, my old 6.0
system comes up fine.
I've even tried installing from scratch, with the same result.
If it's hardware, as your last message suggests, can you tell me what
component it might be?

I will dig through the code to see what the next step in the initialization is,
but while I am doing that, let me know what kind of mouse you have. We have had
a couple of instances of where people have had serial mice on machines with PS/2
ports, and the probing of the PS/2 ports causes a signal 11.
Closing out bug due to lack of activity.
