Description of problem:
I install from CD. The installer crashes at the point when it attempts to
install the zlibxxx module.
Having said this, depending on the exact installation options I select
(workstation, server, custom, etc) or the exact packages I select, the
installer can also fail when attempting to install other modules.
Originally, I thought I had faulty installation media. But I have tried three
different sets of media with the same result.
My system's configuration (see below) may contribute to the problem.
A trace file is attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a normal workstation installation.
Actual Results: The installer crashed.
Expected Results: The installation should have succeeded.
I have a triple boot system on one 13GB HDD - Windows 98 (FAT), Windows NT
(NTFS), and Windows NT (NTFS). Each operating system has its own partition.
Then a 2GB NTFS partition for data files. Then 5GB free space for installing
When I install Linux, I create a small boot partition below the 1024 cylinder
boundary, then an ext3 partition that begins below the boundary, then a swap
