Description Stuart Blake Tener 2000-02-14 10:38:28 UTC
I hate to bug the debuggers with a bug, but...HAPPY MONDAY MORNING! I tried to install (from the CD/ROM) the SPARC image of 6.1 on a Sparc 2 with 16MB of memory. I fdisked the system fine, and when it gave a message noting that memory was minimal, and we needed to invent a swap like right now in order to continue the installation, towit I said "OK". Anaconda went off and started to make the Swap Partition, when I was met with the following message. Traceback (innermost last): File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 238, in ? intf.run(todo, test = test) File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 1038, in run rc = apply (step(), step) File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/textw/partitioning.py", line 171, in __call__ todo.makeFilesystems (createFs = 0) File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 596, in makeFilesystems isys.swapon ('/tmp/' + device) File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/isys.py", line 21, in swapon return _isys.swapon (path) SystemError: (22, 'Invalid Argument') Now I do know that anaconda had all kinds of bugs, special boot up disks, and upgrade floppies for the 386, do you need such stuff for the SPARC platform? Thanks in advance, Stuart Beverly Hills, CA email@example.com Remember when software "bugs out" its always those key soldiers whom cause the problem from the "Invalid C Command": Private Copy General Release Kernel Panic Major Bug Commodore 64
