Description John Stange 2000-01-24 14:44:54 UTC
...and on the other Avanti at work (AS200/166, 64 megs), I've got a
consistent installer crash, in both gui and text mode.  From the graphical

Gtk CRITICAL **: gtkwidget.c line 1584 (gtk_widget_map): assertion

48 megs memory vs 64 megs
one 4 gig internal drive vs one 1 gig internal and one 2 gig external
some unknown PCI video card vs an ATI Mach 64

I attemted to reproduce this problem on a UDB with 48 meg of RAM and a 500 meg
HD, but was unable to with either RHL6.1 or RHL6.2.  I will close this bug with
a CURRENT-RELEASE code.  If it can be reproduced with RHL6.2 we'll reopen the
