Description Regis Stratton 2002-06-24 08:14:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
This occurred on the 2nd attempt to install.  
The first attempts to install failed because 
the autoformat made the swap partition too 
small (probably 2x the wimpy 32M cpu memory).  
Manual format for a 256M swap partition maybe 
fixed this, but the install still did not finish.  

The computer was Win3.1 
  Pentium 166 with 32Meg memory
  empty 4G hard drive (IDE)
  Matrox Millenium video

The install was floppy boot to RedHat 7.3 CD
using default answers for US english install,
    no  Gnome
   yes  KDE

   yes  Workstation
    no  Developer
   yes  Games

This ocurred many hours after I quit watching.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Default US english install to empty harddrive.  
2. Change swap partition to 256M
3. continue with default install.


Actual Results:  
The disk is busy for hours, 
then unhandled exception error message.
It took about 12 hours to do this twice.  

Expected Results:  Plain KDE+game default install on old dog i386.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-06-26 05:09:24 UTC
The bad blocks check found bad blocks. The crash is due to an error in the
handling of bad blocks detection.

Your drive most likely has problems.
