Description of problem:
When trying to upgrade from Red Hat 7.1 to 9, the installer exits
abnormally when it is about to begin installing packages.
When I looked at the /root/upgrade.log, the last line was
"scrollkeeper needs intltool" but it didn't say "automatically added".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When I checked the binary CD (I created using an .iso image
and also it passed the test that anaconda performs), I saw
that it contains intltool version 0.25

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.have RedHat 7.1 installed
2.put binary CD 1 to upgrade to RedHat 9
3.select everything and start installing the packages
4.it will load the packages to hard drive successfully and resolve RPM's
Actual results:
it exits abnormally

Expected results:
it should have found intltool and then start installing packages 

Additional info:
I selected US-english as the language and the keyboard.
I tried all combinations with selecting lilo or GRUB as the boot-loader,
selecting MS Intellimouse PS/2 or generic PS/2 wheel mouse.

I tried to do the same upgrading by writing
"linux text" at the boot prompt.
This time, it also said "received signal 11"
(after saying exited abnormally).

What are the specifications of the system being upgraded?
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-05-29 22:45:32 EDT
The specifications of the system being upgraded is RedHat Linux 7.1

(hw spec:
 1.0 GHz AMD Athlon
 640 MB SDRAM, 40 GB HDD)

At last, I thought maybe by "upgrade" it is meant
an upgrade only from Red Hat 8.0 and I stopped trying 
to upgrade, saved my data and reinstalled instead.
But if "upgrade" means from 7.1 also and this is a bug,
then I think it will be helpful to other users.

This sounds like a possible hardware problem.  Could you test your memory using
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2003-06-22 00:51:19 EDT
When I gave the command memtest86, it cannot find such a command.
I also searched it using "find / -name memtest86".
No results, either. (I already installed RedHat Linux 9,
maybe therefore I cannot find this command?)

PS: I also tried testmem86, testmem, and memtest. They also don't exist.
    I also tried man -k for all these 4 things (memtest, testmem, memtest86,
