Description lee howard 2000-04-09 15:28:07 UTC
I tried upgrading from 6.1 to 6.2. It upgraded all the packages. After
all the packages are upgraded, it threw a python error on the screen with
options "OK" and "Debug". I wiped the hard disk out and went for a fresh
install. It installed all the packages and threw the same error. Finally
I installed Mandrake 7.0. My hardware

	AMD K7 550 Mhz
	First International SD11 motherboard http://www.fic.com.tw
	20G IDE hard drive
	Toshiba DVD-ROM drive on IDE ATAPI interface
	256M Ram

Both Mandrake and Redhat 6.1 detected less memory than I have. I had
to give append="mem=0x10000000" option to get the memory recognized.
During the installation Redhat 6.2 insisted on turning the swap device.

I have been using Redhat since 1995, and this is the first time
I could not make the install work.
on immediately.

I would need the python error output before being able to try to reproduce this

Unfortunately I didn't note down all the output ( Too lazy to write down).
To reproduce the error I have to disturb my existing installation
which I am reluctant to. I am just curious to know if anybody with
the same motherboard could install Redhat 6.2 successfully.

I believe this is the error:
                     Exception Occured

I cannot seem to get a straight install from scratch raise this error before.
