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

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,

     intf.run(todo, test = test)
thon1.5/site-packages/text.py", line

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.
