Description of problem:Attempting to install RedHat 8.0 and system receives a crash dump. This happens after I choose a partition option. The following is a portion of the crash dump.

Changing product and component so proper developer will see it.

What do you currently have installed on your disks? There is something on there which the scan for existing LVM dies when it hits, and it would help diagnose the problem.

I was able to correct the problem. It seems that Partiton Magic 8.0 was causing the issue on the newly created partition. I decided to partition my drive the "old fashioned" way....and everything works fine. The only issue I am having is Red Hat 8.0 is not detecting my Nic. What is strange is that I can hit the gateway on my LAN and browse the net.....but, I cannot browse the LAN?? I have not had time to hit this problem yet, but if you have any pointers....it is greatly appreciated. My NIC is Intel Etherexpress Pro 100+. I have a dual boot ..98/RH 8.0. I can browse the LAN and Net with 98...Net only with Red Hat. I tried to static my IP in Red Hat and no luck. I removed the Nic and put in the correct one In Red Hat and no luck...

Okay -- we've added code in our current codebase so that we don't traceback when vgscan fails
