I am trying to install Fedora 8 (i386) onto a machine which is already
running Fedora 7. The loader crashes after loading initial drivers and
past the "Media check". Actually, after the media check installer throws
"loader received SIGSEGV!" and quits. I have tried the installer with
noapic and acpi=off options to no avail. I had no installation issues
with Fedora 7. Here is the smolt link for the laptop.
