Description Dmitry V. Ketov 2000-02-02 14:13:07 EST
Hi all!
I'm tried to install RH 6.1 using kickstart file that resides on my
DHCP/BOOTP server in /kickstart and can be retrieved through NFS.
Unfortunately i im too lazy person to specify
host-name option in my DHCP/BOOTP server configuration and reverse zone
configuration files for my DNS server :).

It caused an error:
Installer failed with SIGSEGV in loader.c when trying to
strlen(netDev.dev.hostname) cause netDev.dev.hostname was equal to NULL
ksPath = alloca(strlen(file) + strlen(netDev.dev.hostname) + 70);

Thanks in advance for bugfix :)
