Description Tim J. Corcoran 2004-08-06 15:53:50 UTC
Description of problem:
While installing the Fedora Core 2 X86_64 bit distribution on an AMD 
Opeteron server the install will consistently fail reporting a bug 
towards the end of software installation.  It is not the same package 
each time.

Fedora Core 2 X86_64

How reproducible:
Run normal install choosing server and new installation.  Have used 
the DVD ISO as well as the CD ISO files.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
When the installation errors it reports:

Trace back (most recent call last):
  File"/usr/bin/anaconda". line 1131, in ? intf.run(id, dispatch, 
config FileData)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 475, in run dispatch.gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 169, in gotoNext 
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 237, in moveStep rc=apply
(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 1125, in doPostInstall 
devnull = os.open("/dev/null", os.O_RDWR) 
  OSError: [Errno 5]Inpt/output error: '/dev/null'

Expected results:
No error ;^)

Additional info:

This is the standard X86_64 ISOs for Fedora Core 2.
