Description dayton 1999-10-09 02:43:24 UTC
the bootnet.img does connect out to any website, as the ftp address only outputs NULL as the ftp server it's connecting too
Comment 1 dayton 1999-10-12 19:53:59 UTC
actuall none of the installs work right boot.img will has problems installing from a hard drive it will not find any directories.. though they are corrent.. and the CD will not upgrade it stops at looking for packages
Comment 2 dayton 1999-10-12 19:55:59 UTC
the Text mode comes up with an "Exception Occured" error, but it doesn't in the graphical version
Comment 3 dayton 1999-10-12 20:02:59 UTC
the exception error is Traceback (innermost last): File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 225, in ? intf.run(todo, test = test) File "../../../RedHat/instimage/usr/lib/py thon1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 1000, in run rc = apply (step(), step) File "../../../RedHat/instimage/usr/lib/py thon1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 251, in __call__ todo.upgradeFilePackages (root) File "../../..RedHat/instimage/usr/lib/py thon1.5/site-packages/todo.py", line 1155, in upgradeFindPackages packages = rpm.findUpgradeSet (self.hdList.hdlist, self.instpath) rpm.error: error during upgrade check

Send a copy of your fstab, as well as output from fdisk, as there are known problems in both areas which may be what you are seeing.

I have this same problem doing a new network install. At the bottom of the error message (too long to type) it says : IOError: [Errno ftp error] 530 Login incorrect... (this was just after entering in a user account). I have the exact same beginning as the aforementioned dump, but I thought this would help someone look at the ftp login process...
Comment 6 jjacobs 2000-01-16 23:51:59 UTC
I found a work-around. After it prompts for a root password, it prompts for you to set up a user account. If you enter in nothing there. It moves on. Otherwise it does the fatal exception error noted above and fails.
