Description Cameron 2003-02-12 11:38:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Q312461)

Description of problem:
Installer crashes after selecting packages to install. I tried several packa ge 
combinations and the stadard ones with no changes. When preparing packages for 
install a window pops up and says this is probably a bug also gives me a list 
of files it could not install and at the end it says "could not alocate 
memmory". I only tried the graphical install. I tried to save it to disk but on 
my windows machine it doesn't see the file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Any use of the graphical intall for desktop/laptop or workstation.
2.If I use auto partition or disk druid.

Actual Results:  Will not let me install.

Expected Results:  Should install packages

Additional info:

My drive had windows 98 on when i started. I figured it would just delete it 
when during partition. And it did.

How much RAM does your system have installed?

How much swap did you allocate when you partitioned the drive(s) in the system
for use with Linux?
Comment 2 Cameron 2003-02-12 14:25:03 EST
I have 48 megs of ram but my integrated video card uses 4 megs. My system tells 
me i hav 44 megs.I allocated 88 megs for swap partition.

I was able to install the software with text mode installation program.
