Description Katherine Holcomb 2001-06-29 17:06:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1) Gecko/20010608 Description of problem: I used the special boot.img floppy for the L440GX motherboard because I was previously having indefinite hangs on the megaraid driver. The new boot.img worked and I was installing away when it crashed, leaving my system in limbo. I have a traceback I can send. How reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.Get a L440GX motherboard (mine has two cpus) 2.Try to install the OS starting from the special boot.img 3.May entail trying to set up certain types of partitions Actual Results: Kaboom! No OS! It did partition the disks, however. Expected Results: I expected an installation of RH 7.1 (which has otherwise behaved very well for me on other systems). Additional info: The traceback included the line os.mkdir(path, 0755) OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: '/mnt/sysimage/home/localtmp' Note that I was trying to set up /home/localtmp as a separate partition with its own mount point (we have our reasons for that). Also note that /home was getting its own (different) partition.

It would be most helpful if you could attach the complete debug message.

Created attachment 22427 [details] Traceback from anaconda
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2001-07-02 11:14:24 EDT
Did you skip formatting your /home partition? If you skipped formatting, did it already have a file called "localtmp"? (not a directory, but a file?) If you did format /home, try booting with "linux ide=nodma" at the boot: prompt of the installer.
