SUBJECT: SCPH-39004 signal 11 install error

I have a SCPH-39004 and receive signal 11 errors during the install process.

It should be noted that I attempt to install without a memcard as I do not yet have a spare card to use for Linux. Just got my Linux kit yesterday and forgot about this minor detail in the system requirements.

I just want to verify if this issue can apply to SCPH-39004 units as well, or if my problem is due to not having a memcard.

I also notice the rescue mode seem to have problem to list the content of the distribution media. ls often crashes. I do not remember if the crash was due to "segmentation fault" or "bus violation".

I will try to get another memcard today. Will report back if that makes any difference.

Note: I successfully installed the kit manually using rpm from rescue mode, and it seems to start fine using the cd-rom boot method. It is just a pretty minimal install so far.
