I am trying to load Linux on a Gateway 486SX/25 with 4MB of ram and
everything has been going just fine. I partitioned the drives fine,
booting up with my boot and root disks, logged in as root, and used
fdisk on the linux side, all without a problem. But when I go to run
setup, it comes back with segmentation fault. No other info is given.
I found an old message to this newsgroup with a similar problem, and the
solution there was to turn off the external cache in BIOS, which I
tried, but the same error occured.
Is this error something anybody recogizes, and have I given enough
information? Is so, drop me a line.
P.S. Since my setup program has not been run yet, I do not know yet if
my CD-ROM is going to work or not. It is a Mediavsion Reno, which
somebody gave me. I didn't think it would work, but it is a SCSI drive,
and there is a SCSI card in the machine. Has anyone ever got one of
these to work, or should I just spring for a new CD-ROM drive?
