  1. inst -f http://... coredumps

    I'm running a virgin install of 6.5.22f on an IP20.

    When I do inst -f http://freeware.sgi.com/Inst/ it'll go into the menu, but
    if I do any commands, it immediately coredumps.
    I thought this was fixed in 6.5.16 and upwards.
    Did anybody experience the same problem, and what is the fix (if any)?

    First that I've heard of such a problem. Works fine under 6.5.20m on
    IP30. I hope to upgrade to .21 or .22 soon and will report back.

    Please do. It really stinks having to download all the dependencies one by
    one from SGI Freeware.
    Actually, -f doesn't work with anything else either.

    Well it worked on our Origin 200 with 6.5.16m and 6.5.20m, but does not
    work on our Origin 2000 with 6.5.16m.

    I aim to upgrade the 2000 to 6.5.20m soon.
