Description e9alex 1999-10-25 22:35:21 UTC
When I try to install over ftp the installer crashes just
when it's about to retrieve the package list right after
entering the information for the normal user account.
An exception is generated in python. I don't know anything
about python programming but I think it says something about
a crash in urllib.py or something similar.

Please send the full text of the error message (at least the last 10
lines) as this is really the only way of knowing what is happening
with your system.

I have not heard anything about this bug recently, so I thought that I would
check with you and see if you were still having a problem.  If you are, please
submit the details of the error message that you are receiving and I will be
glad to take a look and get back to you with a solution.
