From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux) Description of problem: I am trying to install RH 8.0 onto a brand new server. The system is: 2.0GHz P4 system running on a SuperMicro P4SDA+ Motherboard 2.0GB DDR PC2100 266 RAM 3X IBM 18GB 10K RPM 80pin SCSI U160 HDD's off of Adaptec 3200s Raid Controller ATI Xpert2000Pro RagePro 32MB 4X AGP Video Card Sony SDT-11000 20/40GB DDS4 Tape Drive off of Adaptec 29160 SCSI Controller Panasonic 1.44MB FDD Intel 8460C 10/100 NIC AOpen 952 52X IDE CDROM I start the installation using a RH8.0 Professional CD Set Burned from the original boxed set. Installation starts fine, goes through until just after the formatting of the partitions and the transfer of files to the HDD for installation. It then crashes and prompts for reboot. The first occurance of this, gave me a crash report which I was able to save to disk. Subsequent attempts, the system just goes to a reboot message. The anacdump.txt file is included below. IndexError: list index out of range Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run Installation 2.Setup Partitions using Disk Druid 3.Select "Everything" Installation Actual Results: System formatted partitions and then transferred installation files to HDD. System then crashes out of GUI mode to text session with errors on screen and System Reboot message displayed. Expected Results: Installation should have proceeded to copy files from cd to hdd. Additional info: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 786, in handleRenderCallback self.currentWindow.renderCallback() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 149, in renderCallback self.intf.icw.nextClicked() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 632, in nextClicked self.dispatch.gotoNext() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 150, in gotoNext self.moveStep() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 215, in moveStep rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args)) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 533, in doPreInstall method.mergeFullHeaders(id.hdList) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 42, in mergeFullHeaders hdlist.mergeFullHeaders(self.tree + "/RedHat/base/hdlist2") File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 180, in mergeFullHeaders rpm.mergeHeaderListFromFD(self.hdlist, fd, 1000004) IndexError: list index out of range Local variables in innermost frame: self: <comps.HeaderListFromFile instance at 0x8703cfc> fd: 44 file: /mnt/source/RedHat/base/hdlist2

I have been successful in installing. I decided to try the installation using the original RH CD set from the retail box. This resulted in a error message on installation regarding the partition space I had specified for /usr being too small and that I needed to increase it by 234MB or some such amount to proceed. I reran the install and re-specified the partition structure to accomodate this and the installation worked fine. I would conclude from this that there is a problem with the duplicated CD regarding it's ability to handle an exception when testing partition size in comparison to package size needed for installation. I would like to know why this error occurred since the CD I was using to install was a copy made using our high end cd duplicator and should have been an exact duplicate of the original. I also am curious as to why the CD would work to run the installation but would fail on a particular task like it did. Please let me know what the determination was from the log file that I provided.

I also received the following response when the Red Hat 8.0 install crashed while installing. File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 694 in ? intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 446, in run dispatch.gotoNext()

Did you run the internal mediacheck in the installer on the duplicated media? I copy our CDs all the time w/o issue.
