Mandriva 2009 fails to install

I have just downloaded a 2009 distribution of Mandriva.
I tried to install it but it wouldn't work.
It goes thru the initial stages, hardware detection etc, but then I get a black screen with these two lines:

audit(1239155372.225:69878): auid=4294967295 ses=4294967295 op=remove rule key=(null) list=2 res=1

audit(1239155372.225:69878) audit_enabled=0 old=1 auid=4294967295 ses=4294967295 res=1

and right below it a blinking cursor.
That's it. No Mandriva..
Has anyone seen this kind installation error?

Had the same problem with the live CD and got the same results as yours.

Googled Mandriva +"op=remove rule key=(null)" for the last month and found a bug report here:

Someone else posted on LQ about the issue earlier:

And someone posted at the Mandriva forums:

Dunno how to resolve it but I'll be following this thread and the Mandriva thread.
