Description jiang_fu 2000-01-30 05:59:42 UTC
This happend when I try to install RH6.1 from my hardisk. After "Read Package Information..." The system shows: Exception Occured Traceback(innermost last): File "usr/bin/anaconda/real",line225,in ? inf.run(todo,test=test) File "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/text.py,line 1000,in run rc=apply(step(1),step) File "/mnt/redhat/comps/install/6.1/i386/misc/src/trees/hdimage/usr /lib/python1.5/site-packages/textw/packages.py",line 10,in __call__ File "tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/harddrive.py",lie45,in readHeaders isys.umount("/tmp/hdimage") File "/tmp/lib/python1.5/site-packages/isys.py",line8 in umount return _isys.umount(what) SystemError:(16,'Device or resource busy') I tried several times to configure RH6.1 but this problem still exist. Since I successfully installed SuSe6.1 and BluePoint on the same machine, I am sure this is not a compatability problem or configuration problem. Fortunately I download before I decide to buy RH. Last week one of my classmates persuaded my badly to buy his RH6.1 Deluxe at half price although he bought three days ago. I think he meet the same problem of this installation bug.

Please try again with the updated boot disk and the installer updates disk available from our web site at http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHEA1999045-01.html There were quite a few kinks to be worked out in the installer, and this may well have been one of them. A quick glance at the harddrive.py file in the install tree shows that it might also have problems if you have files in RedHat/RPMS that aren't actually RPM packages. If you have a file named TRANS.TBL or any ls-lR or ls-lR.gz files in there, I suggest you delete them.
