redhat 6.0 install help needed...
im brand new to linux....
im trying to install redhat 6.0 on an old pentium computer. i create the partitions, and then get to the part right after that (im not sure what it is doing - its installing something i think) and then i get this error message:
install exited abnormally - recieved signall 11
sending termination signals - done
sending kill signals - done
unmounting file systems...
you may safely reboot your system
what does this mean, and how can i fix it?
any help would be greatly appreciated..
Did you set the Linux Native partition to active? Did you set a swap file?
yes, i created a swap file, but i dont know if i set the native partition to active - if there was the option to do so i must have missed it - where do you do that? in the disk druid thing?
Please post exactly how you set up your partitions. Do you get to the part where you set up your mouse?
i set 16 mb for the /boot partition, 80 mb for the /swap, and the rest (about 1100 mb) for the root / partition. no, i dont get to where i set up the mouse
Any particular reason you set up a "/boot" partition? If I were you, I would make just two partitions. Make your "/swap" partition and then give the rest to "/".
Your "/" partition should be set to linux native file system and your "/swap" partition should be set to swapfile. Are you gonna dual boot linux and windows?

It seems alot of people get that sig11 error during a RedHat install.
i made a boot partition cuz thats what one particular install guide said to do - i was just following it. i'll try it without it tho. yes, i set the /swap partition to swap file, and i set the / partition to linux native
