Description Kamal 2005-02-01 14:56:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1 Description of problem: CD passed the TEST - After starting the graphical installer, it gives the error: "function probe_partition_for_geom() failed". I kept on clicking IGNORE, which lead to other screans each time. After selecting the timezone, software packages [custom] and when it is started to copy the files from the CD, it gave an exception & hang I was installing on Pentium-II 400 MHz. The hard drive had around 6 GB. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): function probe_partition_for_geom() failed How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start graphical installation 2.The "function probe_partition_for_geom() failed" error msg will be displayed in couple of screens Actual Results: gives exception and hangs Expected Results: Start to copy files from CD Additional info: I think, may be this is the problem of Hard drive or bad CD [even though the CD "passed" the test] In error it said the head size is < 256 with "function probe_partition_for_geom() failed" this message

I had chosen the language of installation as "Tamil(India)"
