Description mikec-w 2000-01-08 15:13:49 UTC
The installer seems to have a bug in that while installing on a Sparc
Station 2 it crashes. The kernel is fine, just the installer.
Text install reaches 'installing components' and then locks and graphical
install only goes as far as select install - i.e. kde workstation, gnome
workstation, etc.
