Description culliton 1999-10-26 23:20:27 UTC
When upgrading from 6.0 to 6.1, possibly associate with some
kind of mount error, definitely associated with customizing
the list of packages to be installed, I got the following
python traceback from the (very slick) new installer:

Gdk-WARNING **: shmget failed!
Exception in thread Thread-3:
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/threading.py", line 376 in
__bootstrap (? handwriting is garbled)
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/iw/progress.py",
line 16, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall()
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/todo.py", line 1512
in doInstall
    prob = "%-15s %d %c\n" % (mount, need, suffix)
TypeError: illegal argument type for builtin operation

BTW - This is with the latest boot image from updates.rdehat.com and a
local CD install.

This may be a duplicate of #5809.  Apologies.  It takes a while to
learn how to search for existing reports, you really have to submit
one yourself to figure it out.
