Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11889
Install fails: anaconda/python error
Last modified: 2016-11-14 11:46:06 EST
I am trying to install V6.1 on a Dell Dimension XPS T600r running Win98.
I have partioned my hard drive into two parts of 7868 MB and 11602MB
respectively using "fips.exe" provided with the package. I am trying to
install linux in the second partion. I have downloaded the updates-RHEA-
1999_045.img and boot-RHEA-1999_045.img too from the ftp site and used
rawrite to create the boot disks.
I tried running the install in gui mode and it came with the following
An error occured No valid devices were found on which to create new
And when i used the text mode I got the following messages:
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 225, in ?
File "/tmp/updates/text.py", line 1009, in
run rc=apply(step(), step)
/site-packages/textw/partioning.py", line 116, in __call__
TypeError: list of strings
I bought the Official Redhat6.1 Standard edition. But the free online
support expired before I could use it. I didn't work on the install as
soon as I registered.
My system details are:
# P3 600MHz
# 20.4GB Ultra ATA Hard Drive, 7200RPM with a ATA 66 controller card
# 128MB SDRAM with ECC
# 32MB NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Graphics Card
I tried to give you all the possible details. Please let me know if you
need anything else.
Please help me!
Thanks in advance
thank you for your report... unfortunately, we could not reproduce this problem
in our tests; this issue may be hardware specific ...
- we created a full drive win 32 vfat partition on a 12 Gb drive
- used fips to partition the partition into two partitions
drive partition 1: 7867 Mb (Win95 VFAT 32)
drive partition 2: 5075 Mb (Win95 VFAT 32)
- booted into the 6.1 installer
- both drive partitions 1 & 2 are available to the installer (ie no exception
or error about 'no valid devices found'...)
before you used fips to partition your drive, did you try to boot the 6.1
installer? Did you get the same error about 'No valid devices found' ...?
