Description of problem:
When trying to do an FTP upgrade using the boot.iso dated 01-12-04, I
get a dump to root and an option to save to floppy. I received a
similar error with an FTP install with the boot.iso dated 01-11-04
recently. An error as described was also encountered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and burn boot.iso for 01-12-04
2. Load disk in bootable CD-Reader and boot computer
3. complete steps to get to the FTP selection
4. Enter FTP site and path to directory
5. Answer questions needed to do installation or upgrade
6. Select programs desired and wait for anaconda to complete steps.
7. Note bug pop-up and save dump to floppy
8. Save error to floppy.
9. reboot system, no damage, anaconda error also in /root directory
Actual Results: Anaconda prompted for the user to save the error to
floppy and afet the information was saved, system halted in a safe state.
Expected Results: The installer would have went through all of the
needed steps and come up with a working upgraded system. Errors with
the instable mix of packages and erratic dependacies is too great to
do a rawhide install currently.
I have submitted an error report for the net-snmp package not meeting
the current rpmlib requirements. The developer is working on meeting
the current rpmlib requirement.

Anaconda dump from /root directory
I hope this helps.
This looks like another skew in rpmlib API that breaks things for me.
Will look into once I get test hardware back up and running (just moved)

dump from ftp upgrade 1/17/04
Is this caused by the mix of packages being dis-located? I had an error
regarding a package named redhat-logviewer not being in the directory.
The ftp upgrade failed with this dump.

dump from ftp upgrade 01-18-04
There was a mention about the noarch packages from development not being
mirrored by some of the mirrors. Most of my conflicts seem to be with
installing the noarch packages. Something about a s390 directory.

Dump from another install - fedora-core 1 to ftp upgrade
This attachment is from a system that was updated to fedora core 1, then ftp
install upgrade was attempted.
The 01-18-04 dump was from a development only FTP install that went well and
was attempted to bring it up to current level.
I pretty much had all I needed after the first traceback, but thanks
for all of them :-)
Fixed in CVS
I noted a problem with getting updates that related to noarch rpms
giving a 550 error for not being able to change directories. I tried
the ftp install fro the same mirror that I get updates from.
Sorry for the excessive traces.

strange output for screen 2 for directories and symlinks to directories
Screen 2 looked fine during the upgrade. No strange characters
present. I believe that it was black and white, but it worked. no
