:Sorry for stupid question, if there was a principal change between DF1.4

There is a bug in the installer where it is trying to free
memory twice, and the new malloc code defaults to treating that
as a fatal error.
It needs to be fixed, but you can work around it by logging in as
root and doing this first:
ln -s a /etc/malloc.conf
(note: lower case a)
Then relogin as the installer and it should work.
