I am attempting to setup mandrake 7.0 and after initializing the cdrom, (just a few
seconds after bootup from the mandrake cdrom), I get a message saying something like
"... install exited abnormally : Signal 11 received ... blah blah ... you can safely reboot .."
This thing happens ALWAYS. Exactly at the SAME point in the installation. It never
gets past this point. What am I doing wrong ?
My PC: Cyrix P166+ / 64mb Edo / 4mb ATI 3D Xpression+ video card
Disk A: 3.2 G ..... partitioned as 1.6G Fat16 (win98 system) + 1.6G Fat16 (Data files)
Disk B: 4.3 G ... partitioned as
= 96 M Linux Swap (Primary Partition) followed by ..
= 2G Linux Ext2 partition (also Primary Partition) followed by ...
= Extended partition containing 2 logical Fat32 partitions (1.3G + 0.7G)
This is the first time I am attempting to install linux. I made the partitions using Partition Magic 4.0.
Is there something wrong in the way I partitioned the drive ?
