Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-03 16:54:33 UTC
It works if you specify them manually, right?

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-08-03 16:57:16 UTC
It works fine to specify them when asked for them -- just not on the
kernel command line.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-03 16:58:56 UTC
What's the last bit on tty3 when it segfaults?

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2004-08-03 17:20:32 UTC
* sending dhcp request through device eth0

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-03 17:40:20 UTC
Committed something to CVS that might fix it (not exactly sure where
you're hitting it and I don't have a spare laptop at home to test
with).  Will be in tomorrow's tree.

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2004-08-05 10:51:35 UTC
Today's rawhide tree (including
anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040803165421.i386.rpm) still shows the problem. 
No difference.

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2004-08-17 12:07:08 UTC
This still happens.  anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040813144102.i386.rpm

Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2004-10-13 15:21:53 UTC
This still happens.  anaconda-

Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2005-04-12 21:21:19 UTC
Committed something to fix this to CVS 

Comment 10 Tim Waugh 2005-05-24 10:16:10 UTC
No, still happens with anaconda-

Comment 11 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-25 15:13:21 UTC
Worked in my test case, will look at more 

Comment 12 Chris Lumens 2006-03-02 15:30:20 UTC
Is this still happening with test3?  We have some better debugging stuff in the
loader now that should at least allow us to narrow down where the segfault is
