I found <http://www.bitwizard.nl/sig11>, question "Why is the Red Hat install
bombing on me?", but no real solutions were offered for my case.

BTW: I'm using 128 MB RAM.

This bug also appears with the 6.2beta installer.

I disabled all caches and sat the memory settings very conservative (latency 3
instead of 2), but no difference. I often compile Mozilla on this machnien and
never had SIG11-problems, so I don't think, it's the memory.

Can you help me. please?
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2000-02-22 14:48:59 EST
Fixed in the latest beta installer.
Comment 4 Ben Bucksch 2000-02-23 15:12:59 EST
What is "latest"? I tried the rawhide version from 2000-02-18, but still see the
same problem.

Can you please explain or REOPEN?
Comment 5 Ben Bucksch 2000-02-23 15:15:59 EST
Oh, I only couldn't change, because I was not logged in :-(. REOPENing.

The bug went away after I upgraded my mainboard and processor. but it is NOT
fixed - I still saw it with the old mainboard.
