Description Simon Baatz 2003-11-09 13:10:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3.1)

Description of problem:
During an upgrade from RedHat 8.0 the installer shut down in the
"Preparing RPM Transaction" phase (or shortly thereafter). The upgrade
was performed using a boot floppy and an NFS install.

The error message before shutting down was:

error reading information on service linuxconf: No such file or directory

When booting into the old RedHat 8 system, it turned out that the
installed linuxconf-1.25r7-3 RPM package (a leftover from some older
RedHat?) could not be removed unless giving the --nopreun option.

After successfuly removing the linuxconf package with "rpm -e
--nopreun", the error disappeared and Fedora could be installed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above

Actual Results:  Installer shuts down

Expected Results:  Installer continues upgrading RPM packages

I saw exactly the same thing. Removed all vestiges of linuxconf and
then a subsequent upgrade completed without incident.
