Description Chris Russell 2001-01-17 10:47:27 UTC
Attempting to install Red Hat Linux 7.0J on an HP Pavillion 6630. Target 
partition is 1.5GB. Selected a workstation installation with the default 
GNOME desktop and the games selection without any package modifications. 
Package installs seem to complete and then the following error occurs:

Incidentally, I have tried this both with and without the Anaconda fix 
(RHBA-2000:084).
