Description Jean-François CABY 2004-02-23 08:56:08 EST
During official Red Hat Linux 6.1 installation in a VMware 
Workstation 4.0.5 environnement on a Compaq Evo N610C laptop (running 
Windows XP Professional), the following error appears after "Reading 
packages information" window:

Exception Occured

Traceback (innermost last):

     return self.packages[item]
KeyError: perl

Installation in graphic mode hangs without error.

Same problem with different installation option (custom system, 
server, gnome workstation).

Same problem with multiple installation CD-ROM.

Problem is permanent and reproductible.
