Omg Great first episode! 'i have a gun'
26th November 2008, 12:07 PM #32
Was fairly funny but i'm of the same opinion that it's an office based comedy program rather than an 'IT' comedy program but then again the stuff we find funny with (l)users wouldn't entertain the masses so i suppose we're just not a big enough audience *sniff*

That amuses me, I always assumed it was a Windows BSOD. But no, it's a Redhat (or derivative, but looks like RHEL to me) machine dying, in a very ugly way.
Producers are weird. Imagine embarassing RHEL in such an unscrupulous way, stripping it of all vestiges of dignity by revealing kernel panics. Very ungentlemanly.

Yes it mentions process Anaconda which is the RHEL / Fedora install program.

Well that was my first thought, but I've never known anaconda mount swap on a physical drive during installation, though I suppose its not impossible. Just strikes me as a bit risky to assume the swap is trustworthy.
On closer inspection though, I've decided its FC4. Look at the kernel flags during the core dump.

Perhaps they were installing Fedora with too little RAM?
Bug 186067 - fc4 to fc5 upgrade fails with 128M memory

That looks probable, I'm sure I've never seen anaconda mount arbitrary swaps before, but hey.
I still think they spent far too much time trying to produce a crash, would have been much easier with Windoze.

The geekiness of this thread is now off the charts...
PS I didn't know that 'Moss' directed all these music videos!?

The IT Crowd Website
I have a new website IT Crowd Online Home which I thought you might like.
However Im not here to spam. I was wondering if any of you guys would like the challenge of designing a header for the site.
The only conditions are that it must be 780x120 pixels.
If any of you can help I'd love to hear from you.
Im at firstname.lastname@example.org
Or if you have any other ideas or suggestions then I'd love to hear them.

When did this move to More4? I've missed out on loads I think?
