RE: kickstart exited abnormally -- sig-11



I've already figured it out.  Thanks for responding, though.  It turned
out to be an DNS+NFS issue on the Kickstart server.  Too bad it's so
silent.  This should be easy to do on the client -- tell you it has
problem with NFS.

Anyway, I'll switch us to HTTP in the next release.

Hi Fong.  I've ran into this before (I think you know where).

Just as a sanity test, can you try accessing the ks config file over
http rather than NFS?

ks=http://192.168.1.1/install/Kickstart/192.168.1.238-kickstart  

I know this doesn't fit well into your environment, however I had to
change my environment over when I consistently ran into this.
