Description Sean 2003-01-28 06:04:49 UTC
Description of problem:After partitions are automatically done and right after 
the installation of packages begins, I get unhandled exception error and a 
prompt to dumb to disk.  This happens in both GUI and Text installs. I get the 
same error.  Here is part of the dump file:

Comment 1 Sean 2003-01-28 06:12:58 UTC
To add to this/correction.  The exception error is happening after I click 'ok' 
on the root password screen after putting in the password/while reading 
packages to be installed.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-29 21:43:38 UTC
What type of installation is this?  Could you attach the full traceback you receive?

These errors in the log:

<4>end_request: I/O error, dev 16:00 (hdc), sector 1105284
<4>hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
<4>hdc: command error: error=0x54
