Please try to post the output of the exception, as that is the only way for us
to accurately reproduce the problem you are seeing.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-04-12 18:13:59 UTC
There is a pretty good chance that I know what is happening here.  If you have
both of the network cards connected to the network, then we have seen a problem
which results in a python traceback.  The best workaround that I can come up
with is that you disconnect one of the NICs from the network while performing
the installation.  You should be able to still configure the card during the
installation.  After the installation is complete, reconnect the NIC and reboot
the machine . . . networking should come up then.

We should have to fix for this pretty soon.

If this is of interest, here is my system.. and my output of the exception:

Any help in this? I will try the bootdisk I found a few minutes ago, and give 
it another shot (with the installation).

Attempting to install v6.2 on Compaq Prolinea ML330 (brand new) with NC3163 NIC 
and are having the same problem as described in bug 10687 and 10730. I also 
have installed RHBA-2000:015-01 and RHBA-2000:010-01 but to no avail. The NIC 
is part of the the Server Feature card (includes SCSI port) so can not remove 
during installation. I would rather not go to v7. Stuck.
