Description jlee4 1999-10-19 23:50:12 UTC
The installer dies, here's the sample output: running install... running /sbin/loader /tmp/eepro100.o: a module eepro100 already exists /tmp/raid0.o: a module raid0 already exists exec:permission denied install exited abnormally sending termination signals . . etc. I am running this off a bootable cdrom that I made, but I have also tried it off of a floppy drive. I've also downloaded the boot image from another mirror, did a "cmp" on the two boot images, they're the same. I've tried this on two different computers, as well, and both gave me the same problem. I've tried this on an IBM Intellistation PII, as well as a unmarked brand PIII, both giving the same problems, even with different components. Any workaround or fix for this problem would be greatly appreciated.

What are the permissions like in RedHat/instimage on the CD-ROM?
Comment 2 jlee4 1999-10-20 04:03:59 UTC
the permissions for RedHat/instimage are: r-xr-xr-x, as are the subdirectories of instimage.
Comment 3 jlee4 1999-10-20 04:06:59 UTC
Ok, I think the problem is the executables in instimage/usr/bin don't have the execute permissions set for some of them, for whatever reason. That's not very friendly. I assume this would definitely cause some problems, especially when things like rpm and bash don't have execute permission. Let me know if I'm wrong, but I think this one can be closed.

Yup, that's why it's dying.
