Description chbm 1999-03-23 21:29:07 UTC
Situation: FTP upgrade from RH5.1 Hardware: 486 16M ne2000 clone IDE When "Finding which packages to upgrade" install receives signal 7 and stops. The only particularity of this system is having an old slackware / on /dev/hda3 and the RH5.1 / on /dev/hdb3.
Comment 1 chbm 1999-03-23 21:58:59 UTC
Changed /dev/hda3 a weird partition type (HURD :)) and the installer still dies.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 1999-03-26 02:15:59 UTC
try running "rpm --rebuilddb" on your old redhat system and run again.
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 1999-04-01 05:50:59 UTC
I guess that worked, since I've heard nothing.
Comment 4 chbm 1999-04-01 09:28:59 UTC
Actually i stoped beating it. And this 03/25/99 comment only reached me today (together with closing comment). I will try rebuilddb tonight and post a forward.
Comment 5 chbm 1999-04-01 18:14:59 UTC
rpm --rebuilddb did not help. However, installing via NFS does not trigger the problem.
Comment 6 Matt Wilson 1999-04-06 18:43:59 UTC
probably a stale stage2.img causing the ftp/http failures.
Comment 7 patrick 1999-04-12 21:10:59 UTC
I've seen this happen for a number of reasons. Particularly it was happening for me over a RH 5.2 distribution on a P120 64M ne2K/tulip upgrade (the machine has 2 nics in it, but the install was going over the tulip nic). This was with RH 5.9.7 upgrade over NFS using the bootnet.img disk.
Comment 8 patrick 1999-04-12 21:12:59 UTC
err .. meant to say I've also seen it happen on a straight NFS install when the RPM's for the distribution were last updated with an old version of genhdlist.
