Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the CD on hardware stated above and wait
Comment 1 Wouter 2003-05-01 17:19:15 UTC
it also happens on a duron 700@940 on a asus a7v133 with a leadtek geforce2 mx64 aka 100/200
Comment 2 Chris Slater 2003-05-20 20:47:11 UTC
I also get a simmilar problem with the America's Army Live CD that was just released. I have an Athlon 1333 MHz with a GeForce4 Ti4800SE.
Comment 3 Stephen Ogletree 2003-05-22 19:41:42 UTC
Same problem happening here.
Athlon 1200
GeForce 2 GTS/Pro
Americas Army LiveCD 1.4_rc4 (aa-20030513.iso)
Comment 4 Bob Johnson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-05-22 20:15:58 UTC
could you please try the livecd by typing  
nofb by itself at the prompt 
note: not "gentoo nofb" 
Comment 5 Stephen Ogletree 2003-05-22 20:57:46 UTC
nofb took the gui out of the boot process, but the unresolved symbols still killed the server with a "Caught signal 4.  Signal aborting"

The only other warning in the log is
NVIDIA(0): Failure reading EDID parameters for display device CRT-0
which I assume is because I use an LCD.

Also, the 1.4_rc1 UT Demo LiveCD worked fine on this exact same system (no hardware changes since then).
Comment 6 Chris Slater 2003-05-23 00:58:02 UTC
I also get a Signal 4 on the America's Army CD -- aa-20030515 Live CD. Same situation, and I can't even get a command line after the crash.
Comment 7 Stephen Ogletree 2003-06-10 01:20:23 UTC
Is there any additional information we can provide the developers so that this can get fixed?
Comment 8 Chris Slater 2003-06-10 12:48:55 UTC
I don't have any addtional infromation at this time other than I do not recieve any EDID errors because I use a CRT and not a flatpanel.

Created attachment 14895 [details]

Similar problem.  I have a gforce2mx.  I'll attach my /var/log/XFree86.0.log

looks like a prob with the nvidia drivers included on the livecd. I don't know if there are plans to rebuild this livecd, but livewire would be the one to talk to. closing since I am not sure if we still support these cds
