Description of problem:
a device line of the following form will cause a signal 11 against the anaconda
device eth 3c59x options=0 full_duplex=0
the PROPER form of this line should be something of the form:
device eth 3c59x --opts=0 full_duplex=0
this is tickling some bug in anaconda, apparently.
not critical, but figured it could be improved upon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put a goofed up device hint in ks.cfg
2. boot the kickstart floppy
Actual Results: a segmentation fault (signal 11) of the anaconda installer
Expected Results: an error message suggesting that the 3c59x driver failed to
load appropriately would be desirable for clarity.
I cant reproduce this problem, but I dont have the nic in question.
Is the issue the fact that the errant options to the driver cause it not to
load, so later anaconda fails?
