Description kimbrell_roy 2000-01-26 17:00:31 UTC
Similar to bug #s 5524, 5771, 5789, 6558, 7064?, 7904?, and 5809 but error
occurred in diferent place in todo.py

Attempted upgrade from 6.0 to 6.1 using a downloaded boot floppy
(boot-RHEA-1999:044.img) and a RedHat 6.1 CDROM on a Dell OptiPlex GX1p w/
2 SCSI drives.  Upgrade failed at or near the end of the preparation for
installation--just after it had determined the number of packages to
install.  The failure occurred whether or not I customized the package
list.  Using the same floppy and CDROM, I successfully upgraded a Dell
OptiPlex GX1p with an IDE drive (from 6.0 to 6.1) and a Micron laptop (from
6.1 to 6.1--yes this was just a test).  However, I noted that the package
list for these machines was different.  Booting using "Text," I got the
following traceback (consistently during several attempts--note: this is
hand-copied so errors may occur):

Traceback (innermost last)

File "/usr/anaconda" line 227 in ? intf.run(todo, test=test)

File "/usr/lib/phyton/1.5/site-packages/text.py", line 572, in __call__ if
tod, toInstall(c):

Type error:  illegal argument type for build-in operation
